THE STORY:

BvB Dallas has been a huge part of my life over the past four years.   I originally got involved in 2012 purely to play flag football and have fun. As the weeks went on, I got to know people and hear the stories of how Alzheimer's Disease tore their families apart.  I was heartbroken for them and I fully committed to the cause: Tackling Alzheimer's Disease.  I have been a player, team captain, MVP, Miss Brunette and now a board of director member.  With Trae's help we have raised over $20,000 for research and care.   THANK YOU for your donations!

Alzheimer's Disease is a really big jerk.  If you have never experienced the anguish of watching a loved one lose themselves to this disease -count yourself as lucky.  Alz's Disease kills more people each year than Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer COMBINED.  It is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the only one in the top ten that cannot be prevented, slowed or cured.

There are so many organizations in Dallas that you could commit your time to and raise money for -I get that.  BvB Dallas is truly an amazing organization that is impacting the Alzheimer's community right here in Dallas and you'll be able to actually SEE IT.  Each year beneficiaries submit grant applications and pitch their asks to the board of directors.  Below is how BvB Dallas has given to the Alz community in the past few years:

Baylor AT&T Memory Center (2015) -Development and implementation of a neurocognitive and psychosocial treatment protocol for ​individuals and families with mild cognitive impairment or early stage Alzheimer’s disease​​

The Center for Vital Longevity at The University of Texas at Dallas (2015)  -The Connected Brain: Genetic and Aging Effects ​Principal Investigator: Kristen M. Kennedy, Ph.D.​​

The Alzheimer’s Disease Center at UT Southwestern (2014)​ -UT Southwestern Exercise Research Study ​​

The Center For BrainHealth (2014)  -Study Expansion of the CFBH’s Staving Off Alzheimer’s Initiative​​

Community Assistance Fund (Catelyn Cappleman Fox- 2014)​ 

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 cannot thank you enough for your contribution to Tackling Alzheimer's Disease!  THANK YOU!
