This past August my mother lost her battle with Alzheimer’s. She lost her ability to speak, write, to stick up for herself and her dignity. This is a terrible disease that slowly takes away your loved one and makes them a shell of a person. My mother was taken advantage of financially by her own husband who was her care taker and denied home care. She over time stopped eating, became incontinent and lost motor functions.
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 helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
