We have made great strides in recent times. More research is needed for a cure. If you dont know somebody who has Alzheimer's, you will soon.
Baby Boomers are aging and it will be a tremendous cost to society and individuals and familes. Please donate below.

I need to get the "easy" states done before I approach far away states. You dont have to be from DE or RI to donate. donate here, you might be the donor who puts me over $1,000 Look for a minimum donation of $10 from all 50 states

I didn't think anyone was actually from Delaware.

I took care of and became good friends with a man with downs syndrome who also suffered from Alzheimer's at the end of his life.

He was a hilarious guy, always a prankster. Quick to laugh at my lame jokes and pratfalls.

I didn't cry when he passed, but I did a few times on the bad days, when he didn't recognize me, when he was scared and I couldn't console him. Alzheimer's is a douchebag and I hope you murder it with your walking.

I wish I could afford more than $10. Good luck and thanks Ryan.

I've sent the request and link to some friends in both states, and ask them to pass along the request.

Thank you Smiles. I'm sorry your friend had to suffer. I sounds like you were a good companion to him. I want to totally get ride of Alzheimer's. When I see a walk for cancer or autism, I say to myself, "When a cure is found for Alzheimer's, I will devote myself to these causes"
