Marv Naylor, to my wife, is "Grandpa." I have not personally suffered the loss of a loved one whom I knew to Alzheimer's, but I experienced the devastating effects of brain disease on the personality and presence of both my mother and mother-in-law. I can only imagine, based on my wife's description of her description of Marv's struggles, the sad similarities. It is a pain sometime worse than the death of a loved one to have them with you but not wholly themselves. I am sure we can put a stop to Alzheimer's, if we each do just a little to help.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 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.
