The walk

Tomorrow I am going to walk for Alzheimer’s disease to raise money for research.  I thought I would share a few facts about this disease.

1. Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the US.

2. Every 67 seconds someone develops Alzheimer’s disease.

3.  Women in their 60’s are 2 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s over the rest of their lives than breast cancer.

4.  55.000 people living with Alzheimer’s in Western New York.

Have a great weekend!😊🌼

    Hi ladybug,
    That is nice of you to try to help people with Alzheimer’s disease.
    I am afraid I will get it. It is one of the reasons I blog although my main reason is to help people with my blogging tips.
    I met you at Roberta’s blog party.
    Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.

    Bless you!! I took care of my grandmother during the last two years of her life as she faded with Alzheimer’s. Such a hard sort of dementia to deal with. May God lift you up!
