Oct. 18th is the Greenville, SC WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S
I’ve jumped in a lake on a cold Sunday morning in my pajamas to try to get you to donate. If you haven’t seen this you can see it here.
I’ve written about my mom’s and my journey every week to convince you to donate…
So now I am down to begging…please don’t make me…it’s not pretty!
So I will just stick to the facts:
5.4 MILLION Americans are living with Alzheimer’s Disease right now!
5.2 MILLION our over the age of 65
200,000 are UNDER the age of 65
There are 15 MILLION unpaid caregivers in the United States
An Alzheimer’s patient can expect to spend $215,000 throughout the course of this disease ($40,000 directly and $ 175,000 indirectly)
PLEASE DONATE TODAY!!!!
Today, I am pulling out the big guns and asking for a special favor. You see my momma, at 78 years young, is going to walk and while we have raised $195 none has gone specifically under her name. For every $100 we raise we get a WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S T-shirt. My mom is a T-shirt collector and nothing would give her greater pleasure (except maybe blueberry pop tarts) than to have one of these T-shirts so today I am asking you to go to:
This is our team page, it lists the members of our team and I would love to see mom hit that $100 mark. I would love to see all of us hit that $100 mark but especially for her. Her name is LIZZA and it is right there on our page. Just click her name and donate. PLEASE…OKAY NOW I’M BEGGING!!!!!
Appreciate the good, laugh at the crazy, and deal with the rest.
I love you, momma!
