For my Grammy - For my Pop
I'm helping Joe McIntyre raise money to #ENDALZ. Please consider donating to my fundraiser in support of this amazing cause.
My Grammom lived with Alzheimer's for years. My Pop is living with Lewy-Body Dementia now. I've seen first hand how debilitating these diseases can be. As a caregiver & nurse I know the impact felt by family/friends trying to help their loved ones who suffer from these illnesses.
This year Joey McIntyre is sponsoring a fundraiser and a contest. Those raising the most money have a shot at some pretty awesome prizes! But what's most important is the thousands of dollars that will go towards research, advocacy, and support.
Joey has been a spokesman for #ENDALZ for years. His mother, who lived with Alzheimer's, passed away last year. Joey is being recognized by the Association for his work in promoting a greater understanding of Alzheimer's disease and its effects on individuals, families and caregivers.
