In 1995, my Pawpaw first started experiencing signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Simple everyday tasks soon turned into problems for him as the disease progressed. But he is not the only one to face this hardship. More than 5 million Americans are living with this and I don't want to see another person go through what my grandfather did. The last time I saw him, he did not recognize who I was and this is not okay. I have done Alzheimer's Walks the past four years and will continue to press forward in an effort to put an end to this disease. This is why I am donating my birthday, January 4th, to help end Alzheimer's. Rather than sending me gifts, I would like to put all of that money towards helping fight this disease. Please help me in my fight to end Alzheimer's!
