My Grandma Margie was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease when I was in junior high. When she was unable to continue living alone, my parents brought her to live with us for six years, leading to her passing in 2009.
My mom spent multiple years as her full-time caretaker, and we're very grateful for all the support she received from my dad, twin brother, aunts, uncles, cousins -- the list goes on. To all my family and friends who helped during those challenging years, I also Walk for you! Caregivers and advocates are the difference makers and do not go unnoticed.
Please help me reach my goal to find a cure for this awful disease - every dollar counts and I would truly appreciate it!
I spend time volunteering each year with the Alzheimer's Association of Wisconsin and passionately serve in the following positions:
- Waukesha Logistics and Walk Day Experience Committee Co-Chair
- Milwaukee Marketing & Outreach Committee Co-Chair
- Milwaukee Young Professionals Executive Committee Member
Alzheimer’s disease is relentless. So are we.
Support our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
