Can you imagine ever being involved as a soldier in a war defending our country? Just imagine that you make it home safely as a hero, just happy to see your family and put those terrible times behind you. Next, imagine if you were later diagnosed with Alzheimers and those precious memories with your family you spent your time fighting for were being taken away over time. Lord knows we all suffer from memory loss, but our encounters are usually just temporary, possibly sometimes embarrasing, but they are soon forgotten or laughed away. Those with Alzheimers fight a currently impossible battle and they need our help.
Did you know that Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.? And that it's the only one in the top 10 that cannot be prevented, slowed, or cured?
I am happily dedicating my time and efforts on behalf of Colonel Paul Gregory McMahon. He was the father of my Uncle Paul and Alzheimers ended up taking his life. He served his time as a fighter pilot in the Marine Corps, flying in Vietnam, and retired as a Colonel. I didn't know this, but my Aunt informed me that Colonel is one rank below General. That's amazing! I can't even imagine what impact he could have made on everyone around him during the years that were taken from him.
I am proud to be a rookie coach involved with BvB Dallas raising money for Alzheimer's research and last year the organization raised half a million dollars that went directly to research. We're back looking to do bigger and better things and we need your help. Every dollar helps, every dollar makes a difference. This team's efforts provide funding for critical research at UT Southwestern, the UTD Center for Brain Health, and the Baylor AT&T Memory Center. So please, donate below. Help us find a cure and end this terrible disease.
Thank you for helping fund Alzheimer's research and supporting BvB Dallas! More importantly, thank you so much for your generosity!
