It’s time to WALK to end Alzheimer’s (09/15/2013)
From: Jane Bremer

Alzheimer’s Association Volunteer

2013 WALK Committee

Alzheimer’s disease is an epidemic in America that continues to affect millions of individuals of all age groups. In 2013, over five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. The cost of caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other types dementia is estimated to total $203 billion this year and will increase to $1.2 trillion by mid-century. No one should have to live through life with a disease that changes one’s self-identity.

All the love in the world cannot stop the slow disappearance of someone with Alzheimer’s. With no current cure and with the recent NIH governmental cutbacks in research and support, this disease will continue to cost families, care givers, and health care resources millions of dollars to control.

Join me, my fellow walkers and the host family of Helen Leaf Haun in the Alzheimer’s Association Winona Walk to End Alzheimer’s on September 28 at the Jaycee pavilion to help end this debilitating disease.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Since 1989, Walk to End Alzheimer’s has raised more than $347 million for the cause.

I volunteer, as well as participate in the walk because I want to prevent millions of Americans from being affected by this disease. Visit www.alz.org/walk to find out more and join us today.
