Thank you for visiting my donation page and helping me TACKLE Alzheimer's! This is my first year to participate with BvB Dallas on the BruCrew and we are excited about the big game on August 13th!
This isn't just about the game, though. All of the money raised goes to THREE great beneficiaries:
Center for Brain Health at UT Dallas. BvB funded Phase 1 of the study suggesting that cognitive training may have an impact on impoving cognitive function for people with mild cognitive impairment. BvB is now funding Phase 2 to add researching on brain stimulation and advanced brain imaging.
AT&T Memory Center at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas. BvB is funding a test to analyze blood and/or urine samples to detect Alzheimer's Disease vulnerability several years before symptoms may occur.
And my favorite... UT Southwestern Medical Center. BvB is funding a fellowship devoted entirely to the research and treatment of Alzheimer's and it's side effects. There is NO fellowship in existence that focuses on Alzheimer's. This will be the first ever and BvB is helping to fund it!
Even if you and your family aren't currently affected by this disease, it's becoming alarmingly more common and is likely to affect 1 out of 3 people in the future. Two-thirds of those affected will be women. I'm hoping my small contribution to funding the research to cure this disease will make mine and my family's lives easier a few years down the road.
How can YOU help ME and BvB's cause? Make a DONATION today! Every $25 donation you make gets a ticket to the big game on August 13th at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. If you aren't able to make it to the game, don't worry! Your donation will still help!
Please let me know if you have any questions at all. I hope to see you in the stands on August 13th!
Thanks so much!
