This past month I’ve been busy with purple activities in support of Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month and The Longest Day. We wore our purple shirts. We passed out END Alzheimer’s stickers, and we sold some yummy pies at our Pies for Pops bake sale on Father’s Day.
As many of you know, I have a personal reason for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease: my dad. He lost the fight against Alzheimer’s in 2013, but with more than 5 million Americans living with the disease, many of you probably know someone fighting the fight right now.
What you may not know is that researchers believe the first survivor of Alzheimer’s is out there…somewhere. That person might be 2 or 62, but with every research dollar raised, the cure gets closer. With every research dollar raised, the vision of living in a world without Alzheimer’s gets closer.
We can’t get there without you. Please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association before the end of June in support of The Longest Day. You may make your donation in honor of someone you know currently living with the disease or maybe you want to honor a caregiver who cares for your loved one living with Alzheimer’s. Because for those living with the disease and for their caregivers, each and every day can seem like the longest day.
Every dollar donated lets them know that we are fighting the fight alongside them. They are worth fighting for. Our memories are worth fighting for. Our hope to END Alzheimer’s is worth fighting for.
We only have two days left in our Go Purple month, and we need a big push to reach our goal. Please share this urgent message with your friends, family and places of business. The generosity of family, friends and corporations across the country will help us reach our goal before the end of June. Will you help us get there?
