A Break for a Serious Note

This coming Sunday, in memory of my father, I will be participating in the 2014 Walk to End Alzheimer's event. My dad battled the disease for over 10 years, but the worst day (other than his death) was when he looked at me and didn't know who I was. Alzheimer's robs a person of all their memories. There are currently over 5 million people affected by this hideous disease, and it is predicted that the number could grow to as much as 16 million by the year 2050.  Could you take a moment and donate anything you can afford? I'm sure that unfortunately we all will eventually know someone with Alzheimer's. Thank you.
