We all have a reason to end Alzheimer’s — whether it’s to honor friends or family you’ve lost, to show support for a caregiver or person living with the disease, or to slow rising healthcare costs and put a stop to this global epidemic. This cause is personal for me because I lost my grandmother to Alzheimer’s Disease in 2008 at the young age of 69. To date, I have lost 7 family members to this disease and have 3 family members currently living with Alzheimer’s. That is why I started the Bakersfield Blondes vs Brunettes Powder Puff Football Game. That is why I walk to End Alzheimer’s. That is why I raise the funds, that is why I advocate to our elected officials, that is why I educate the community, that is why I participate in Trial Match and that is why I have made this cause my daily career/mission. I do it so that I can have hope. Hope that one day there will be prevention. One day there will be effective treatment. One day there will be a cure. I want to live in a world without Alzheimer’s. #ENDALZ
