For the past four years I have worked at the Alzheimer's Association and I know this organization as one committed to supporting families impacted by dementia and Alzheimer's, and advocating for legislation to fund research all around the world. I work with colleagues many of whom have lost a family member to this devastating disease. I know how dedicated this staff and organization is to being there for people living with the disease and their caregivers and to finding a cure and an end to Alzheimer's.
I am walking in honor of the people I have met through the course of my work-- those living with dementia, the dedicated caregivers who are there for them, those working in memory care facilities and health care and folks who advocate for more attention & resources to fight this devastating disease.
This is such a hopeful time for realizing an end to this disease-- with the advancements in treatments that can actually slow the progression of the disease for those in early stages. This is just the beginning!
Please support me and the Associations's efforts to be there for every person on this journey. It takes all of us. Thank you so very much.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
