Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I am walking because Alzheimer's/Dementia has played a personal role in my life and the life of my family. In 2007 my father, Henry had a stroke and was in a coma. When he awoke from the coma, he was diagnosed with Dementia. Our lives were forever changed. We don't complain, we don't question why. We only thank God for keeping him!
We are called Henri's Angels because Henri is what I sometimes called my dad when I was a younger. I called him Henri because I was taking French and that was the French form of Henry. He seemed to like it and still laughs whenever I happen to say now. It is something that he remembers and I treasure.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
