I am playing in honor of my Grandma. She suffered from dementia and it was hard to watch how much the disease affected her and everyone around her.
It is crazy that believe women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer's epidemic. Nearly two-thirds of the Americans living with Alzheimer's – and more than 60 percent of Alzheimer's and dementia caregivers – are women.
It's time to take action by taking the field! Please support my participation in RivALZ, a flag football game and fundraising competition to help end Alzheimer's. We may be opponents on the field, but when it comes to Alzheimer's, we're all on the same side. This is a disease that must be defeated and we need your help to do it. Your donation will advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for helping us tackle this disease – win or lose, our true goal is a world without Alzheimer's!
