The second weekend in October is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Dayton. I participated in my first walk last year and walk in honor of my mother-in-law Phyllis. She was diagnosed a couple of years ago and has been living in a care facility. While I don’t carry the weight of caring for her on a regular basis, I’ve seen up close what a struggle that is for her family. She is not the same wife and mother due to this disease and it is a sad process to watch.
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is designed to raise funds to further research to find a cure. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Last year we walked with hundreds of people in sea of purple to bring awareness to this disease. I would love to have your support as I prepare to walk. You can make a donation of any size on my Walk to End Alzheimer’s page.
Thanks in advance for any gift you can give.
