I'm walking as part of a worldwide assault on Alzheimer's disease. Today, this vicious disease is ruining the lives of more than 5 million Americans. Without a breakthrough that number wil grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Many of us will suffer this grim disease in the future unless a way can be found to stop its rampage.
My Mary was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in September 2001 and after a long decline passed away on March 6, 2010. I am walking to hasten global research to defeat this disease for my family, for your families, for all of our children and their children.
A cure, or a means of preventing Alzheimer's disease, must be found so that ONE DAY THERE WILL BE SURVIVORS. The alternative is unthinkable. Thanks for helping.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
