Walk To End Alz

Walk to end Alz (Alzheimer's Association) is a fabulous organization set up to help find a cure for the incurable (for now) disease, Alzheimer's. This is such a heartbreaking disease and we actually know more people with it than we realize.

What is Alzheimer's?

Alzheimer's is defined as "a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks." Click here to read more about this debilitating disease." -Alz.org

The BowPosh family has joined the Alzheimer's Association and Walk To End Alz to make these walks and fundraisers fun! We are super excited to be a part of this as we have family members as well suffering from this heartbreaking disease. We want to help in any way we can and this is a great start. Our Fort Myers walk is on 10.25.14 and the Naples walk is on 11.15.14.

If you are local (Lee and Charlotte County) and would like to join our walk, you can do so here or you can find a walk in your local area by searching for a walk by your zip code on Alz.org. We would LOVE for you to join us!! You do NOT have to walk to enjoy these items or to send donations but a portion of each sale of these specific items will go toward the Alzheimer's cause!

Time is reversed with those with Alzheimer's Disease. It is if they are slowly going back in time to the first stages of infancy in the mind. These loved ones looked after us in these times and it is our job to be there for them now. Please do not give up. There will be a cure one day and it and may just save your loved ones life or yours. -LC
