I am part of the “Sandwich Generation.” I cared for a young child at the same time as caring for my mom. At the young age of 64, my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association really helped me look at the journey I was on through a different lens. I never imagined that I would reach out or need that help, but I did. I’m so thankful for that advice and support. Please join me on Thursday, April 4th by attending our 2019 Reason To Hope Breakfast!

There has never been a more critical time to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease and over 15 million Americans are providing unpaid care and support.
Both of these numbers are expected to triple by 2050.
While the numbers are staggering, we at the Alzheimer’s Association know there is Reason to Hope.
As the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research, we remain committed to serving
the 144,000 people living with Alzheimer’s in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. For the nearly 400,000 family and friends
caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or another dementia in our two states, we’re here to help you create a network of support.
The Alzheimer’s Association continues to lead the charge for greater public awareness and more advances in research.
Through the support of our generous donors, we’ve made significant progress. Our goal is to ensure no one faces Alzheimer’s
or dementia alone—and we won’t stop until we find a cure.
