Big John and Ramblin’ Ray express the importance of ending Alzheimer’s. They’re joined by Dani Jachino, a participant for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s® – Chicago, she gives her story on why she walks and encourages others to get involved to help end Alzheimer’s.
My Mother lived the last year and a half of her life in a dementia unit. My Dad’s brother and sister died of Alzheimer’s, as did another aunt and uncle. Friends’ parents had the disease. Friend’s spouses have the disease. I do not want it and I want an end for future generations.
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.
