Alzheimers has touched me in a very personal way. My gransfather lived with it for ten years before he ultimetly passed away. I have heard nothing but amazing things about your foundation and would love to help raising money for such a great cause. I recieved my masters of social work last year and would love to help in planning for events or assissting someone who does, or any other place that I am needed.
