The love of my life, Jim, passed away on June 19, 2018 after a courageous 14 year battle with Alzheimer's. It is a horrendous disease that takes your loved one away TWICE...once during the disease and then at death. It is definitely the "Longest Goodbye". We need YOU to help US find a cure. Please donate to our walk team, Papa's Paraders, in memory and also in honoring Jim. Also, come join us at the Chattanooga Walk to End Alzheimer's. We have been doing this walk since 2008 hoping for a cure. Who knows, the next brain you save might be your own!
I'm walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support.
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 and me.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
