I'm walking because Alzheimer's has already affected two generation of my family, and I want to help reclaim the future for my family and millions of others. My mother, Mary Patricia Griffin Kuta, died in September 2012 from complications of Alzheimer's. Her mother, Helena Carroll Griffin, and her aunt, Irene Carroll Layton, both died from this disease. Other family members have suffered from various forms of dementia. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support.
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 need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and 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 our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
