My Great Grandmother Pauline Gowan was my life and I loved her so much! When I started to notice changes in her I brushed it off for the longest convincing myself she would get better. But it was time to face reality I had to face the fact she had Alzheimer's disease. I was young and didn't know much about this thief, it want until the end of her disease I met a lady Joyce Finkle who worked for the Alzheimer's association who I now know was God's way of showing me I could end this . I started walking for the cause, and in 2012 I became a committee member for the walk and then stepped up to a chair member and will continue to do this till this nightmare can end for all. As baby boomers continue to age and retire Alzheimers rates are expected to increase! I’m on a mission to see someone carry that white flag saying that they beat Alzheimers and we can finally have a cure! Alzheimers is not backing down and neither am I!!
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's 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 methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, 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 the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
