I have been thinking a lot about one's "memory". This horrific disease robs our loved ones living with Alzheimer's their dignity not only memories...I think of how much memory defines each of us! This year marks 11 yrs to Walk to End Alzheimer's. It is with such as passion and determination that I continue to support the Alzheimer's Association to help put an End to Alzheimer's disease. By participating in the 2019 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™, my commitment to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care and support hits a special 11 years milestone for me. I would like to ask you to join the "Memory Caregivers" team and help my team to surpass my goal. For example, last year we raised $3,412.00 and hope to surpass this amount for 2019.

Also, I am especially proud to share that this is my 6th year to "pay it forward" to volunteer for the Alzheimer's Association of Westchester/Hudson Valley Chapter in their "socialization" program. In addition, I have successfully created an in-home program offering seniors living with dementia an opportunity to Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
