September Is World Alzheimer's Awareness Month

Last weekend, my mom, my sister and I participated in the Walk To End Alzheimer's.  It was our first time to participate and we had a great time.  I was thrilled to see such a great turn-out for such an awesome organization.  We participated in honor of my mom's mother, Sylvia Kelly, who was a victim of Alzheimer's and passed away on July 1, 1997.  I'm proud to report that "Team Kasey" raised $1, 275 for the Alzheimer's Association - Oklahoma and Arkansas Chapter.

September is actually World Alzheimer's Month.  The mission and vision of the Alzheimer's Association is simple: 
  • MISSION: To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
  •  VISION: A world without Alzheimer's disease.

Visit  the Alzheimer's Association web site to find out about ways to get involved with World Alzheimer's Month, including:
  • Wearing purple on September 21, Alzheimer's Action Day.
  • Purchasing special "World Alzheimer's Month" products to raise awareness.
  • Attending an Alzheimer's Action Day event near you.
With your help, we can move toward our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease. 

Happy Blogging,
