Memory Walk is Coming!
Posted 8/30/2010 1:00:00 PM

Did you know that more than 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's disease? That's a staggering statistic. And I know firsthand the devastating impact this disease can have on a family. I lost my father to Alzheimer's disease almost a decade ago and I've missed him everyday since.

Alzheimer's disease isn't just about forgetting where you you put your keys or blanking out on a name once in a while. It's more than that. This disease has a physiological component that debilitates a person over time. But research is continuously unlocking the mystery behind this disease and finding new ways to treat the symptoms of Alzheimer's. Plus, the great folks at the Alzheimer's association have countless resources that help patients, their caregivers and their families.

However we still need to find a way to end Alzheimer's. That's why I'll be walking in the Greater Boston Memory Walk, September 26th  and I want you to join me. In the days to come I will be forming a team to walk together on that day. So stay tuned for details. In the meantime, to find more information including other walk dates and locations nearest you, go to our events page or visit www.alzmass.org
