Hello friends and family! Thank you so much for visiting my donation page and helping me tackle Alzheimer's.
I am so thrilled to be a part of BvB Dallas!!! This is my "rookie" year and I can't be more excited to start raising money for Alzheimer's research! The big charity football game is on August 13th at the Cotton Bowl but we will be working hard all summer to raise as much awareness and money as possible.
Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and is the only cause of death in the top 10 that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed.....at this point! Did you know that every 66 seconds, somebody in the U.S. develops Alzheimer's?!
This year BvB Dallas is funding some really amazing and innovative research projects! (They're actually realllllly cool...)
Contributions to this fundraising campaign will go directly to our 2016 Beneficiaries: Center for Brain Health at UT Dallas, UT Southwestern Medical Center (funding the 1st ever Alzheimer's postdoctoral fellowship program), and AT&T Memory Center at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.
As some of you may know, I am playing in memory of my great grandparents, Alonzo Palmer "Daddy Lonzo" (August 1921- April 2010) and Carnetta Palmer "Mamae" (April 1924-May 2016), who were married for 71 years!! They lived long, beautiful lives and though we knew they were reaching their final days...the hardest part for my family was watching the effect Alzheimer's and dementia had on their minds.
If you would like to help raise money for a really important cause that has affected so many of those we know, click the DONATE TO THIS FUNDRAISER button. Your donation takes us one stop closer to finding effective treatments and/or a cure!
May Daddy Lonzo and Mamae rest in perfect memory with eachother.
