More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's. Between 2000 and 2019, deaths from Alzheimer’s have increased 145%. Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease are women.
With Jerry's permission, I want to share our story. - My husband of almost 44 years was diagnosed with dementia and early onset Alzheimer's disease in March of 2016. Changes are starting to occur, but nothing major. Jerry continues to be in the moderate stage of the disease. He still struggles with finding the words to relay his message and being able to retain information. Just this year, Jerry decided he no longer enjoys traveling. COVID has kept us from large traveling trips, but even the short ones cause him anxiety.
I'd love to have your help in trying to find a cure for Alzheimer disease. If you can pray for us and/or help with a monetary donation, it would be greatly appreciated. Our team will not be attending the October walk this year.
I hope to have some fundraisers prior to the October walk, so check out my FB page closer to then!!
Be sure to get yourself or a family member checked out, if you feel there are significant changes in memory or the ability to finish a project that used to be easy. You are also welcome to contact me for any questions you may have.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
