HELP ME DO MY PART TO SUPPORT PEOPLE AFFECTED BY ALZHEIMER’S & DEMENTIA AND THEIR CAREGIVERS!  

So many of you helped me raise over $3,000 back in November for the NYC Marathon. It's because of those donations, I ran 26.2 miles. You ALSO helped me raise over $1,200 for Ride To Remember. Its all for my favorite person in the world, my Grandmother, Bubbie. In 2012, she was diagnosed with a rare form of Dementia, called Frontotemporal Dementia. FTD tends to occur at a younger age, generally between the ages of 40 and 75. Alzheimer's is such a cruel disease with no treatment or cure. 

I hope you can join my team or donate generously to this deserving and amazing organization, CaringKind, New York City’s leading expert on Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving. Hopefully we can help move them closer to a cure, so that this heartbreaking disease will be eliminated in the future.

To end Alzheimer's disease, Congress must fund Alzheimer's. Congress has failed to pass a federal budget for 2017. This delay is hurting the more than 5 million individuals who have Alzheimer's disease and the 15 million Americans who are caring for someone with dementia.By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million - almost a 40% increase from the 5.2 million affected in 2016.

Did you know??...

Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Alzheimer's Association.  Your donation will go directly to Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders, New York City, Inc.  The fundraising efforts support social work services, early stage services, support groups, educations programs, a 24-hour hotline and much more. These funds help keep the programs free for anyone who needs them. CaringKind collaborates with research centers to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research.
