Memory Walk

Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative disease that destroys brain cells, causing memory loss and problems with thought and behavior.  It gets progressively worse over time and is always fatal.  There is no cure.  According to the Alzheimer's Association, a leading nonprofit dedicated to Alzheimer's care, support and research, Alzheimer's disease is currently the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States.  Some 5.3 million Americans are currently living with the disease, including my mom.

I'm determined to do something to help.  Once again this year I'll be participating in the Alzheimer's Association's Memory Walk, in Cedar Rapids on Saturday September 18th, to raise funds in the battle against the disease.  I hope that you will consider giving a donation.  No amount is too small; every little bit helps.  Last year, Team Cashner was able to raise over $500 for the Alzheimer's Association.  With your help, I know we can do even better this year.
