Let's face it, there is no GOOD disease or Syndrome to be diagnosed with. Nobody says, "Yay, it's only skin cancer!" or "Thank goodness Granma only has Parkison's." However, it seems to me that dementia/Alzheimer's is becoming more and more prevalent. And it is brutal, taking a toll on friends, loved ones and caretakers as well.
If you haven’t known someone who has dementia yet, chances are that you soon will. I personally watched Mutzie and Ed forget who they were, where they were and eventually become unable to communicate or do everyday tasks. That’s why I am again participating in The Walk on September 17. It is also why I’m asking for donations. I hope and pray that funds raised will lead to break throughs in treatment and prevention. I dream that in my lifetime or at least my children's that we will see the first Alzheimer's SURVIVOR! If you can’t afford to give - trust me I get it, just wish me well. If you can help out - it is GREATLY appreciated!
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
