Freddi Berliner, my loving aunt, was one of more than 5 million Americans battling Alzheimer's disease. We lost a fantastic mother, sister, aunt, and friend in August 2018 at 62 after being diagnosed at 52 with early-onset Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's is a horrible disease that wipes a person of all their memories and connection to life. Watching her deteriorate over a decade was unbearable to witness. Imagine no longer recognizing your children and family or not remembering how to walk, talk, chew and swallow, or use the bathroom. We fought hard while she was alive to keep her comfortable and tried everything possible to help her remember through pictures and music. Freddi's fight may be over, but ours isn't, so please support me in any way you can!
Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in our nation and the only top ten leading causes of death without prevention, treatment, or a cure. We need to do more. So please join me and invest in a world free of Alzheimer's.
I am honored to serve as this year's Engagement Co-Chair for the Boca Raton Walk to End Alzheimer's!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
