THE STORY:

Hi all,

This is my first year running for the Alzheimer's Association.  After volunteering and working with people living with the disease, I became motivated to do more for all the individuals I fell in love with.  Thank-you for your support!

ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE IS FATAL. IT IS THE 6TH LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE US WITH CURRENTLY NO WAY TO PREVENT, TREAT, SLOW OR CURE IT. ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND RELATED DEMENTIAS ARE NOT A NORMAL PART OF AGING. WHILE THOSE COPING WITH ALZHEIMER’S SLOW DOWN, THE DISEASE SPEEDS UP. WITH OVER 400,000 PENNSYLVANIANS STRUGGLING WITH DEMENTIA, THE TIME IS NOW, ALZHEIMER’S CAN’T WAIT! OUR FRIENDS, OUR FAMILY MEMBERS, OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS CAN’T WAIT.

FUNDS RAISED ENABLE OUR CHAPTER TO PROVIDE AN ARRAY OF SERVICES FOR THOSE DIAGNOSED WITH ALZHEIMER’S AND DEMENTIA AND THEIR FAMILIES - FROM COMMUNITY EDUCATION PROGRAMS, SUPPORT GROUPS, CARE CONSULTATION SERVICES , RESOURCE MATERIALS AND FINALLY OUR 24/7 HELPLINE. EVERY DOLLAR HELPS US REACH MORE PEOPLE WITH OUR SERVICES, LET MORE PEOPLE KNOW WHO WE ARE AND ASSISTS IN THE ADVANCEMENT OF RESEARCH. IN THE PAST 8 YEARS, THE ASSOCIATION HAS PROVIDED $3.5 MILLION TO RESEARCHERS IN PENNSYLVANIA.
