THE STORY:

Zoe Pittman wrote -

My great grandmother died 6 years ago after a long battle with Alzheimer's. It was a devastating time period for me and the rest of my family. Even though I was only 12 at the time, I still remember details about her. She was the rock to our foundation, the last piece to our puzzle, and the icing on our cake. She even touched the lives of her friends and of those she hardly knew. She was an inspiration to ALL. I love hearing my mom's and granny's stories about her.

I decided to start IRemember about 6 months ago after I read a paper that I wrote about my great grandmother, to my class and cried. I had not realized how much she impacted me. I want the world outside of my family to know how special my great grandmother was. She could make anyone smile before and even after Alzheimer's began to take its toll. 

While this is my story Alzheimer's effects us all. Today 5.4 million Americans are living with this horrible disease and two-thirds of those with the disease are women. As statistics have shown it is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S and the 5th leading cause of death of people over the age of 65. Deaths from Alzheimer's has INCREASED by 66% while deaths from other major diseases have decreased. HOWEVER ALZHEIMER'S IS THE ONLY CAUSE OF DEATH AMONG THE TOP 10% IN AMERICA WITHOUT A WAY TO PREVENT, CURE, OR EVEN SLOW ITS PROGRESSION.  

So help me make a difference. I want IRemember to be BIG so it can make a HUGE difference. 

SO DONATE TODAY AND HELP ME MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!
