Hi everyone! Thank you so much for visiting our Alzheimer's Walk page. We've formed Team Connor in honor of Kevin's Alzheimer's diagnosis.
As you likely know, our family received an Alzheimer's diagnosis in the fall of 2021, and it has impacted all of us greatly. This was after numerous years of misdiagnoses and ineffective treatments. We were so surprised to learn how varied the symptoms and presentation of Alzheimer's can be. We have also been shocked to learn that of the top 10 diseases impacting adults in the United States, Alzheimer's is the only one without any major, reliable treatments.
So we've decided to join this annual walk to raise awareness of the many ways this disease can take shape and raise money to someday find more effective treatments. Any funds we raise will also allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide care and support for families dealing with this awful disease.
We'd also like to invite you to please walk with Team Connor - Chicago on Saturday October 7th at 8:30am at Soldier Field.
Thank you so much for your willingness to support this walk, and as always, for all of the support you've already given our family. We love Kevin/Dad/Boompa/Beef and each and every one of you so much.
The Connor Family
