I hope that this note finds you well! As you probably know, my father was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia as it causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Although his symptoms have developed slowly over the years, his memory loss and behavior changes became much more severe these past months. This has been especially tough on my family since my dad always had a vibrant and dynamic life.
From October 25th to November 12th, I will be trekking across the Himalayas and trek to the Everest Basecamp at an altitude of 5,550m / 18,209ft. I am endeavoring in this adventure to raise awareness of this disease and raise funds to help prevent it from further impacting people.
We are so close to finding a cure for this ugly illness. The most promising research conducted so far focuses on preventative approaches. My father won’t probably be able to take advantage of these new medical trials but I wanted to help prevent, to the extent I could, this ugly disease from further spreading.
After a long research, I picked the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund which specializes in funding targeted research projects with the highest probability of slowing or reversing the impact of the illness. I am asking your help in donating to this fund as little as you can.
So, if I make it all the way to the Everest Basecamp on November 6th, feel free to donate to this fund through this link: I would be very grateful for your support and encouragements.
