Remember to get off the couch for Alzheimer's disease
To the editor:
As a person travelling the journey with Alzheimer’s disease, I am reaching out to each and every one of your readers.
Currently, more than 70,000 people in B.C. are living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and 10,000 of them are under the age of 65. If nothing changes, the prevalence of dementia in B.C. could more than double in the next 30 years.
Each one of your readers can help in the search for the causes of, and cure for
dementia and help to provide services and support for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Please get off the couch and join our local fundraising ‘Walk for Memories’ on Jan. 29 at Eaglequest Golf at Coyote Creek. For information, to register or donate visit www.walkformemories.com.
Some things I may forget, but I will not forget to ask for your help.
