Alzheimer's Disease not only hits home for me because of where I work but I also lost someone 20 years ago to Alzheimer's. I was young at the time and wasn't fully aware or comprehending what was happening. Being a child, a lot was also kept from me. I am able to remember my grandfather for the amazing man he was before the disease took him from us.
A lot has changed since 20 years ago and the Alzheimer's Association is a huge contributor to that change. The support they offer to families and caregivers, along with the research involved to slow the progression in hopes of one day finding a cure.
Please consider donating to the cause as on September 30th, I will be walking in support of all our residents at Glenwell living with the disease, the family members and caregivers and in honor of my grandfather, Donald Tate.
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.
