THE STORY:

Peter Psyhogeos wrote -

Dear Friends,

 

     Last year I sent an email about my families Alzheimer's fundraiser. Our original goal last year was $25,000 for the whole fundraiser. By the end of the fundraiser $140,000 had been raised. Thank you to everybody that donated. All of that money went to Brigahm & Womens Hospital in Boston [BWH], and they have now found amazing things out about Alzheimer's, and have gotten closer to finding a cure. One of the most amazing things BWH has done in the past year is, they have launched a study for people beetween the ages of 50 to 65 years old who don't show elevated levels of amyloid plaque in their brains, but are at risk of getting Alzheimer's because of a family member. The outcomes of these tests will become a study platform to help prevent Alzheimer's. 

     No cure to this terrible disease has been found yet, but BWH has gotten closer, and we are fundraising again this year. My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's over ten years ago. I was only about one when she got Alzheimer's, so sadly, I don't have many memories of her. Four of her five children are running in the Maine Marathon, and most of her sixteen grandchildren are running. More than five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's. I am runing in a Marathon relay, and my part of the relay is the first leg which is six miles. Last year this day was tons of fun, but we are not just doing this for fun we are doing it to find a cure to Alzheimer's desiese.
