You Are Not Alone

There is not a more powerful way for us to convey what inspires our mission to fund the fight against dementia than to share our stories and to hear yours. The damaging effects of dementia become more palpable and tug at our heartstrings a little more when we see the pictures and read the real words of the friends and family who have directly experienced the impact of dementia and alzheimer’s. So please read the unedited words of those whose lives have been impacted so dramatically. Our strength to find a cure comes from our community of support.
