Alzheimer's Memory Walk

Alzheimer’s is a slowly progressive and fatal brain disease which seriously affects a person’s ability to carry out daily activities. As many as 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. This disease does not only affect the person concern but also greatly affects his whole family. This can be saddest thing in life when there is somebody you love and shared time of our life could no longer recognize you anymore. I have been able to manage patients with Alzheimer’s and it really takes a lot of explanation to the family since his awareness at that time is low compared to previously.

Unlike today awareness campaigns like that of Alzheimer's Memory Walk® is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. This looks for volunteers to become champions in the fight against Alzheimer's via walks in more than 600 communities. A typical Memory Walk is a 2-3 mile walk which will be held on a weekend morning in the fall.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.”
- The Bible: Ecclesiastes
