Alzheimer's is a common and serious brain disease. The first noticeable symptoms of Alzheimer's are: loss of memory, trouble performing tasks, poor judgement, misplacing things, inability to think and understand and gradual changes in behaviour.
I feel very strongly about this because I have known so many people that have had to go through this with a loved one. Its very very sad to see this happen to people. I cannot imagine someday my mother not knowing who I am! But it DOES happen and OFTEN...
The Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Held annually in hundreds of communities across the country, this inspiring event calls on volunteers of all ages to become champions in the fight against Alzheimer's. Since 1989, Memory Walk has raised more than $225 million. Team captains are needed NOW! Team Captains need to sign up early to ensure they have enough time to recruit a team and raise funds for the cause!
The Alzheimer's Memory Walk is nationwide(they even have one in my area, I checked!).. So you CAN sign up! Please sign up early, its for a great cause!
