On September 25th I will be doing the "Walk to End Alzheimer's" and I am trying to raise donations in memory of my father who passed of this illness.

It would mean a great deal to me if you are willing and able to make a donation in any amount to support Alzheimer's research.

Please follow the first link below to consider a donation. Thank you in advance for your support.

My donation page: http://act.alz.org/s...nal&px=12356861

For more information about the Alzheimer's Association: http://alz.org/

That's a very touching video Chris, and a wonderful cause. It's nice to see this sort of thing find its way into our community. Best wishes.

I will definitely make a donation before the deadline. This is great stuff.

 

My grandmother has had this for a few years & it was heartbreaking. However, she's older & not that it makes it any less of a tragedy, you kind of expect bad things to happen to people when they get older, know what I mean?

In the past year, my favorite uncle, who would be anyone's favorite uncle, has fallen victim to this disease. He's far too young (at least he seems to be) and is such an incredible human being, it is devastating. I'm honored to have become the first employee this past year of a non-profit he founded in 1987 and it saddens me to no end that he can't see the good work that is being done.

 

My point is that Alzheimers has hit home for me big time in recent years & I'd love to become more involved in the cause. Thank you Chris for leading the way & helping to inspire me to do more.
