Walk To End Alzheimer's

Most of you are aware that this past year has been a difficult journey for our family as Alzheimer’s disease continues to battle against my father every moment of every day.  There is not a moment that goes by that we are not reminded of this ugly disease head on.  But we know there are people who are trying to make a difference.

I want to extend to each of you an invitation to join my team.  You may not live near here and may not be able to join us on the actual walk, but knowing that you are on the team and praying for us and thinking about us is so important.  IF you are lead to give money to help us make our goal that’s great but if not – we know you are joining us in spirit.  Please strongly consider joining the Office Remote Control (my company) team as we Walk To End Alzheimer’s this coming fall.

her chemo and radiation.  They celebrate 50 years this September!
Thank you for considering.  You are all a blessing. 

Click “join our team” and take a five minutes to complete the online form.  I thank you, my mother thanks you, and my father appreciates EVERY step each of us takes.  Thank you.

"With an aging baby boomer generation, the Alzheimer's disease crisis will continue to touch more lives and create an unsustainable fiscal toll on the nation's healthcare system – particularly Medicare and Medicaid," said William Thies, PhD, Chief Medical and Scientific Officer at the Alzheimer's Association.
