Dolly L Deans
is fundraising to honor:
all those facing Alzheimer's
The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. And it's the day I have committed to fight Alzheimer's disease! I’m participating in The Longest Day, a fundraising event to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Today, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer's or other dementias, including more than 5 million Americans. In the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing their care. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise. I remember the time when a Va. Beach resident called 911 Communication and said, “I can’t remember how to get home”. Once the citizen was located, they were only a few blocks away from home. I remember a citizen getting ready to go to work, oops! He hasn’t worked in over 30 years. He was located by the NC Police & brought back to Virginia Beach. I remember, when my neighbor was trying to open her back door, nope, that was the shed in my back yard.
I remember. Stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
