Niagara University's Marketing Association (NUMA) decided to get involved to support those affected by Alzheimer's. Our members have personally seen the struggles that Alzheimer's puts on those diagnosed along with their family and friends as well.
We are all connected to someone who has been touched by Alzheimer's.One member of NUMA found out about a family friend’s father who was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2009. Her father was 56. Their family is pictured in the slideshow to the left. Another member had to watch her neighbor go through the struggles of Alzheimer’s. Another lost their Great Uncle in 2001.
Precious moments are slowly lost once Alzheimer’s has taken hold. NUMA believes that precious moments are important and should always be remembered. NUMA believes that even in hard times, everyone needs an outlet to forget about their struggles, even if it is only for a short time. This is why we give our full support to Hilarity for Charity.
