Alzheimer's Walk

First event of the day is complete! This morning I walked 5 miles to bring awareness to Alzheimer's. I walked in memory of Esther Ramirez who is one of my Luggage of Love Board Members' mother. Esther passed away last April of Alzheimer's disease. There is no known cure for Alzheimer's, and it accounts for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases today. The Alzheimer's Association is the leading, global voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care and support, and the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research. Today, the Association reaches millions of people affected by Alzheimer’s across the globe through our national office and more than 75 local chapters. As the largest donor-supported, voluntary health organization for Alzheimer’s, the Association is a catalyst for advancements in Alzheimer's research and care.
