THE STORY:

In 2006, we lost my grandfather, Vincent B. Murphy Jr., after a long-fought battle with Alzheimer's disease. Experiencing the disease, its symptoms and struggles, and its effects on a family firsthand had an incredible impact on all of us, and the cause has stayed very close to my heart.
To think that by 2025, the number of reported cases of Alzheimer's is expected to nearly double to 34 million--and those are just the reported cases--and that 1 in 3 individuals is affected by the disease by the age of 80 gives me a sad confidence that my grandfather will not be my only exposure to Alzheimer's. As one of five kids, it will almost certainly affect at least one of us.
Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation recognizes that "although several FDA-approved drugs are on the market today that treat the symptoms, none affect the underlying disease process. More needs to be done." I couldn't agree more. ADDF funds a variety of drug discovery programs, and all the money raised goes straight to research. I am using this opportunity to encourage (monetary) support for Alzheimer's disease prevention, and ADDF in particular, with the hope that their work will help enable the breakthrough that we all need.
As my dad and I set out to run the ING NYC Marathon together on November 4th, we'd love your help in fighting Alzheimer's--and the threat it poses to our abilities to preserve this memory--with every step. Thanks for your help!
