Dear Family and Friends,
My grandmother, Diane Aeschliman, is in the late stages of Alzheimer’s and I will be running my third half marathon this September in an effort to raise money for the Cure Alzheimer's Fund. 100% of donations go directly to research. My paternal grandmother and great grandmother also suffered from this devastating disease, and I hope and believe that the researchers funded by Cure Alzheimer's will one day find a cure.
If someone you know and love has had the misfortune of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, please consider making a donation. Because I also want to do something to positively impact the lives of those currently living with the disease, for every $150 that is raised for the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, my family will donate a Jellycat stuffed animal to give comfort to someone in the late stages of Alzheimer’s. My siblings and I were able to distribute 35 Jellycats (after a generous donation from the Jellycat company) to the residents of my grandmother’s memory care facility back in April, and they brought a lot of smiles.
Many thanks for your consideration.
P.S. If you shop on Amazon, also please consider setting up an Amazon Smile account so that a portion of your spending can go to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.
