I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.

My grandmother, Leola Graham, lived with and succumb to Alzheimer. I saw first hand how this disease deteriorates the individual. My grandmother and I were very close when I was younger. Before she passed away, she didn't remember who I was. This was very devastating to me because we were like two peas in a pod. At the end of her life, she was always in a happy mood. I recalled she would make jokes about being in the hospital. You couldn't tell she was ill because she made light of the situation. I plan to continue honoring her by walking.

Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
