I lost my Pappaw on Feburary 25th 2014 to Alzheimer's. He was a small town family man who loved his family, community and strangers alike. Alzheimer's tore my pappaw away from us. He grew impatient, cold and paronoid. He forgot his own children. We hold onto the memories of his warm hugs, sloppy kisses and kindness. Losing him, was detramental to my family. Remembering him makes us stronger. I am a fighter, because my pappaw fought for his life. And now, I fight for others. -Leslie B.
I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease. I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide. Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
