A few weeks ago Jason and I sat down with Sommer Lally (Development Director) and DeeAnna Esslinger (Executive Director) of the Greater Kentucky & Southern Indiana Alzheimer’s Association.
For those of you tuning in for the first time, I announced back in December that I am dancing in Dancing with the Prospect Stars. Each star picks a charity to fundraise for, and I choose the Alzheimer’s Association since my late grandmother suffered through dementia.
If you have a chance please listen to the podcast! It was such an eye opening conversation about this debilitating disease.
If you can’t listen to the podcast. Let me leave you with some of the facts that stood out to me.
- Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in America, and it’s the only disease that has no cure, or treatment.
- Every 65 seconds someone in America develops symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
If you want to do something about please consider donating to my Longest Day Fundraiser! No donation is too small! It all adds up.
If you want to see me dance you can get tickets to the event on Feb 17th! It’s going to be a fun time! (Please select Charles Wilkerson so I get credit)
