I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®
I'm walking in honor of many people but this year especially in honor of my dear Uncle Ed Sartain, my Daddy’s youngest brother. Uncle Ed was only 4 years my junior, which made him feel more like and older brother than an uncle. He was always my protector and called me “doodler” because I was always drawing and “doodling” as a child. We lost him on July 2nd, way too soon. I walk also honoring my beloved Mother-in-law, Viola Kipp, my precious great grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Jones Hathcote, my sweet as pie Uncle Ray "Boog" Sartain, dearest Aunt Carolyn "Callie" Sartain Brown, two cool cousins who died too young also, Kerry Sartain and Linda Sartain Johnson, my great Uncle Franklin Hathcote, and other family members, friends and their families.
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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
