I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support.
My father suffered with dementia for more than 10 years. It broke my heart as I saw his mind slip away and he forgot who I was. What helped my sister, brother and me was as Dad's memories left his smile never did. Dad never met a stranger and continued even as this horrible disease took his mind. When you asked Dad how he was feeling he would always reply "pretty good for a young fella" except in his final days he indicated he was tired. Dad left this world on January 7, 2019. Help me raise the funds for research so other families don't have to suffer as my family did.
In addition to Dad, I walk to honor the past and present residents who I serve working as the Director of Memory Care at Reunion Court of The Woodlands. I have worked with the senior living population for 40 years and my heart grieves with the resident as well as their family members as the dementia slowly takes the mind and memories.
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.
