ORGANIZER: BIG D POWDERPUFF TACKLING ALZHEIMERS INC
Hey hey!! It's my third year playing with BvB Dallas , and every year I fall more in love with this organization. I might've started out playing for the love of sports, but the compassion, love, and genuinity all players, coaches, and leadership show to people they don't even know, keeps me coming back.
Before I started, I didn't know much about Dementia or Alzheimer's , and later learned that the two are different yet related. Not only does BvB support research, we picked as an Organization, our very own beneficiary's. This year your support will help fund:
- UT Southwestern - They will provide training for a neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship, to be named after BVB Dallas, in research and patient treatment related to Alzheimer's disease.
- Baylor AT&T Memory Center - Baylor will be conducting research with the goal of developing a blood or urine screen to detect Alzheimer's vulnerability years before symptoms occur.
- Center for BrainHealth - Findings from the Center for BrainHealth's 2014 study, partially funded by BvB Dallas, suggest strategy - based mental training may have far - reaching postitive impacks. We are again supporting this study in its second phase, as it explores the impact of brain stimulation and utlizes advanced imaging tenchniques to understand the brain's response to training.
I know, Science is so cool. So with your support not only will you have helped participate in the above, but you are also giving those affected with this horrible deadly disease HOPE.
