I have lost two grandparents to Alzheimer's disease and have witnessed the pain, loss of autonomy, and decreased quality of life experienced by these loved ones as their cognition declined. My child is now the same age I was in the photo with my grandfather who we lost in 2020, and she was named after him. As she grows older, I want her grandparents and her children's grandparents to remain as cognitively present as possible, making and keeping meaningful memories together well into the future. I know many others with stories and experiences similar to mine and my family's, and want to do what I can to end this disease for them, for us, and for my future clients affected by Alzheimer's and dementia.
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 like mine 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 helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
