I was personally impacted by Alzheimer’s when I lost my father to young onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2013. As a doctor, Dad began his battle wanting to do everything he could to slow the progress, so with the help of my Mom he participated in multiple trials and studies over the years. Unfortunately nothing helped and he lost his battle at the age of 63. His contributions to the fight didn’t stop there though as his brain was donated for Alzheimer’s research to hopefully help those that are impacted in the future. I miss Dad every day, so to continue what he started I made a promise to honor his legacy by helping raise funds to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Funds raised will help other families who are going through what my family went through with Dad’s battle and to promote further research to hopefully not only find a treatment for the disease, but also a cure.
Alzheimer's is the only disease among the top 10 causes of death in America that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease and over 15 million people are serving as their caregivers. Your donation will help raise awareness and funds for this disease that has or will affect so many families. The Western Carolina Chapter provides patient and family services, information and referral, education, and advocacy in the 49 central and western North Carolina counties.
Dad will always be unforgettable - let's ensure that others do not become forgetful!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
