Watching my family members live with Alzheimer's and Dementia is heart wrenching. To be physically healthy but not be able to remember your loved one's names, to be unable to formulate words, to ask to go home when you actually are home. This is the reality for someone living with this disease and is only a tiny glimpse of a their day.
Although I cannot change the progression of this disease for my loved ones, I can help those who are struggling and need support and care now!!
Once again I have the pleasure of helping Scott's office raise money for the local Alzheimer's Association. Last year we raised over $29,000!!!! I have a personal goal to raise $2,500. In conjunction with the 9th annual golf tournament being held on June 3, 2016 I am selling raffle tickets to help raise money. Tickets are only $20 and prizes total almost $2000. For every $20 you donate, you will be entered in to win one of 3 amazing prizes.
At Bankers Life, they witness firsthand the impact that Alzheimer's disease has on their customers, their families and their caregivers. That's why in 2003 they established Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days, their nationwide fundraising campaign to benefit the Alzheimer's Association.
One hundred percent of the donations collected go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.
What started as a grassroots fundraiser has blossomed into a national fundraising campaign that has helped raise more than $4.1 million for the Alzheimer's Association through Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days collections and corporate donations.
Thank you so much for supporting this important organization that supports those living with Alzheimer's.
