THE STORY:

BIG D POWDERPUFF TACKLING ALZHEIMERS INC wrote -

WELCOME TO THE 2016 BRU CREW FUNDRAISING PAGE.

Thank you friends and family for donating to such an amazing cause. It is my personal goal to raise funds to help end this epidimic that is Alzheimer's Disease.

"Justify your existence," is a key motto in my life, given to me by my grandfather Charles Sprague. He was a motivator, a leader, and a hero to me. When my grandpa Charlie passed away in 2005, I was too young to know the reason why. It scared me when he asked my grandmother who I was one day. I wondered: how is it that memory can be affected that much, that you could forget your own family members? 

Eventually, I was told that Charlie had dementia, and after his funeral, I became more interested in the brain and how it worked...or sometimes didn't work. Alzheimer's Disease affects more than 5 million Americans. It is the #6 cause of death in the U.S., and it cannot be cured. This amazes me in the worst way possible.

By donating to BVB Dallas, you will help UTSW Medical Center develop TWO fellowship programs specializing in Alzheimer's research. If you knew Charlie, you'd know how much UTSW meant to him. The AT&T Medical Center at Baylor, and The Center for Brain Health will receive funding from BVB Dallas to help detect Alzheimer's Disease 5 years earlier, and improve cognitive functioning through training. 

I would like to justify my existence in honor and in memory of my grandpa Charlie. By donating to BVB Dallas, you will help so many people who are suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. Let's tackle Alzheimer's together!
