Personal Page of an Alzheimer's Daughter
Walk with me or donate to "Celine's Memories" in the "Step Forward Give Hope" 2019 Alzheimer’s Walk to help families facing Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia right here in southwest Wisconsin.
Although Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging, the risk of developing the illness rises with age and heredity. Mom came from a family of 9 in which all had signs of dementia or Alzheimer's Disease. I want to find a cure before I reach my 60's (yes....10 years if you're counting). Current research from the National Institute on Aging indicates that the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease doubles every five years beyond age 65, with one in two people over 85 affected.
The Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin helps families in Wisconsin as they face every stage of this disease, a commitment they have maintained for over 30 years.
Please help me reach my goal by making a gift today. Do it in "Honor and Memory" of Mom! We lost her in January 2019 to this disease that stole her memories for years before then. Let's fight this disease together!!
