BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association

EVENT: HFC U 2017

THE STORY:

My Story: I hate Alzheimer's Disease because it stole my mom from me. She was diagnosed when she was only 56 years old when I was in high school. Before AD showed up in her life, my mom was a vibrant, intelligent woman who traveled the world, taught Spanish, and was the most dedicated, loving mother you could find. I cannot express how difficult it has been watching her deteriorate, forgetting important facts like her own birthday, the ages of her children, and my fiance's name.  It has been beyond tragic to watch her lose her "spark" and personality and her interest in most things she formerly loved; it has pained us all immensely to watch her lose the ability to do everyday tasks on her own such as turn on the shower faucet or make coffee.  It's like watching someone slowly disappear while they're still standing right in front of you.

No one should EVER have to go through this disease or helplessly watch anyone else suffer from it. For that reason, I am estatic that this fundraiser exists, reducing the incredible stigma associated with this illness, raising awareness, and raising funds for caretakers and those who have AD.

This is for you, mom! Please donate to help create a better future WITHOUT ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE! How do YOU want to be remembered?

About Our Efforts: Illinois Student Athletes and Illinois Student Registered Organizations are teaming up to raise awareness, help find a cure, and support all those affected by dementia whether it be those with the disease or their loved ones. Our main event will be a variety show, featuring performances by student athletes. Athletes and Illinois students are learning that research indicates that the risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease is linked to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and concussions which can be caused by sports injuries. Each year, an estimated 42 million people worldwide suffer a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) or concussion. Furthermore, a single moderate to severe TBI with loss of consciousness is associated with a 2–4 fold increased risk of dementia in later life. Donating to this cause is a way to protect the future of our students, athletes, care-takers, friends, family, and loved ones.
