My ALZ Story
When I was a journalist, I was asked to write a story about Alzheimer's. I didn't know much about the disease then. But after researching it, I felt the best way to tell the story was to interview people who were suffering from it and the caregivers who were with them every step of the way.
The experience was heart wrenching. Those I interviewed were forgetting their loved ones and cherished memories, everything they were, as each day went by. The toll on their caregivers was immense too. It's not fair.
In 2019, on my 40th birthday, I pledged to raise $200,000 for the Alzheimer's Association in 10 years. And we're off to an amazing start, crushing that goal in just 3.5 years
1) 2019 --- $27,460
2) 2020 --- $34,101
3) 2021 --- $91,747
4) 2022 --- $106,677
In 2023, my fundraising goal is $125,000. And what's my new lifetime fundraising goal? How about a cool million?
We all deserve a world without Alzheimer's and other dementia. And I'm not stopping until that happens. We're coming for you Alzheimer's ... it's time to #ENDALZ.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
