THE STORY:

I joined BvB Dallas in  2010 to play football, and walked away that summer with a much deeper understanding of the disease we are raising money to fight, and the impact it has on the lives of those affected first hand. Since that first summer I've been fully invested in the work BvB Dallas does and have been so thankful to be a part of an organization that is working towards TWO MILLION DOLLARS raised, and help better the lives of everyone that is impacted by the disease.

Throughout my time with BvB Dallas I've been a player, team captain, and now am serving as a Board of Directors member and Co-President of the organization. THANK YOU for continually supporting my efforts to raise money to combat this terrible disease. Every donation makes a difference!

Currently 5.4 million people are living with Alzheimer's disease and over half of those are women. Every 66 seconds someone develops this disease and by the year 2050 someone will develop Alzheimer's every 33 seconds. The growth rate of this disease is rapid, and if we don't continue to fund research you and I could potentially be affected in the future.  

BvB Dallas takes the money you are contributing and puts it good use in our own backyard. In the last two years alone we have funded four major research initiatives in Dallas, and provided one deserving family with a community assistance fund. Your 2016 donations will be funding the following projects:

UT Southwestern:    UT Southwestern will provide training for a neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship, to be named after BvB Dallas, in research and patient treatment related to Alzheimer’s disease.

Baylor AT&T Memory Center:    Baylor will be conducting research with the goal of developing a blood or urine screen to detect Alzheimer’s vulnerability years before symptoms occur.

Center for BrainHealth:   Findings from the Center for BrainHealth’s 2014 study, partially funded by BvB Dallas, suggest that strategy-based mental training may have far-reaching positive impacts. We are again supporting this study in its second phase, as it explores the impact of brain stimulation and utilizes advanced imaging techniques to understand the brain's response to training.

I truly appreciate you taking the time to visit my page, learning about battling Alzheimer's, and contributing to our cause.
