is fundraising to honor:
her mom, Nancy
The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. And it's the day I have committed to fight Alzheimer's Dementia diseases! I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. I watched as dementia took my mom on her walk to heaven. 9 years. For my dad, my brother and I it was seemingly forever and yet, stunningly brief. It is a slow, silent killer. We need to stop it.
We’ve learned more about the brain and neurological system in the recent 20 years, than in all the thousands of years prior... we need to find a way to stop this. Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise.
Please join me, for the longest day is the day we fight the longest. There is more light in the next month than there will be all year...help us stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
