We are united in a movement to hopefully change the future for millions. Over 6 million Americans are dealing with Alzheimer's or related dementia. Some people don't realize that this disease takes more lives every year than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. It also takes the loved one away in pieces as the disease progresses. It truly is a devastating disease and we need to do all we can to fight it. Everyone on the team knows someone whose life has been affected by this disease and we fight for better care and support~ and ultimately an end to Alzheimer's disease.
Join our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer's disease. Together, we can advance research to treat and prevent Alzheimer's, and provide programs and support to improve the lives of millions of affected Americans. Our journey to a world without Alzheimer's starts NOW, and we will not stop until it stops.
Please see Team Captain Karen Marez's page for a bit more about the My Sunshine team she started in 2015 to both battle this disease for others and to honor the memory of her mom Lois.
