I’m participating in The Longest Day to honor Karin R. & Mark W. and to show my love for all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. On June 21, I am joining others around the world and doing what I love to honor people living with Alzheimer’s, their care partners, and those lost to the disease, while raising funds and awareness to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Today, an estimated 47 million people across the world are living with dementia. This number is set to skyrocket to 75 million by 2030. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. These numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action.
Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer’s disease they are not alone. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer’s Association advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s and provide care and support to those facing the disease today.
