Alzheimers affects 6.2 million Americans and more than 470,000 veterans. It is the sixth leading cause of death, and the only leading cause of death without medicine, treatment, or a cure. My father, a Navy veteran, was one of those afflicted with this disease. Unfortunately, on 16 November 2021, he passed away.
My father is a veteran who served in the Navy. He earned his dolphins and served on the USS Torsk, currently docked in Baltimore, Maryland. Before his symptoms worsened, every weekend, he’d work with the Torsk Volunteer Association to not only restore the boat, but lead tours. In addition, he organized reunions where those who served aboard the USS Cutlass, another submarine he had served aboard, could reconnect. However, his service in preserving history didn’t end there. He also worked on restoring the Liberty Ship John W. Brown, also docked in Baltimore, utilizing his background as an electrical engineer. Always having a passion for motorsports and racing, he taught performance driving and driver safety at Summit Point Motorsports Park for years.
My father has always done his best to help those in need. Today, I’m asking for your help. Please donate to my Walk to End Alzheimer’s fundraiser. Donations help fund research for a cure. Together, we can help find a cure for Alzheimer's, and ensure that those afflicted with this terrible disease have the care and resources they need.
Every dollar, every donation, and every share of this fundraiser page brings us one step closer to a cure.
Thank you for your support.
