Want to join me in supporting a good cause? I'm raising money for Alzheimer's Association and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps.
Did you know that as of 2019, Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in America? Currently, almost 6 million people are living with Alzheimer's, with this number projected to rise to 14 million by 2050. Alzheimer's disease affects thinking, concentration, memory, judgement and ultimately impedes a person's ability to perforn normal daily activities.
82% of seniors say its important to have their thinking or memory checked, but only 16% actually receive regular cognitive assessments. 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia. Alzheimer's kills more than breast and prostate cancer COMBINED.
Raising money for Alzheimer's awareness is important to me because of the impact the disease has not only on the person affected but for the families, as well. CAREGIVERS ARE HEROES, TOO! It's also important to understand that cognitive health is just as important as our physical health.
My vision is a world without Alzheimer's disease. To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
