Worldwide, more than 55 million people are living with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Alzheimer's is a brain disease that affects memory, thinking, and behavior. The majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older, however there are cases of younger-onset or early-onset Alzheimer's that affects a person under the age of 65, like my father Dwight Jackson, who was diagnosed at age 55.
Everyone can help in the fight to end Alzheimer's. You can be an advocate by staying informed, making a donation towards research and development, or becoming an advocate for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and those who care for them.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
Thank you for your support!
