Over twenty years ago, as a tribute to my grandmother Dottie, I participated in my first Walk for Alzheimer’s Disease. I continue this effort in honor of my dad. This year I am still walking, just on my own like the other Walk participants. So much of our world has been altered these past 6 months but one thing that hasn’t changed is my commitment to the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia disorders.
Over the years, your contributions have helped fund programs and services for Alzheimer’s patients as well as their caregivers and families. During this pandemic, staff and volunteers ensure that Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers continue to get the support they so desperately need. All programs have gone virtual, including social meetups, art programs, healthy brain and tips for early detection of Alzheimer’s.
Your contributions have also funded worldwide scientific studies, leading to advances in biomarker detection and lifestyle intervention. While these studies provide promise and hope, definitive treatments continue to be elusive and the number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease is projected to be 14 million by 2050. We need to alter this trajectory and continue the fight.
Thank you for your continued support.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
