Why I Walk with Marcie McMillin

Why I Walk Wednesday- Marcie McMillin

Marcie McMillin’s parents on their wedding day.

 

I’m walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the 2017 Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, I’m committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer research, care, and support.

Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.

I lost my Mom Betty Ruth Pickler to this disease in 2006 after 18 years of suffering. My dad is 95 years old and misses her every day.

I am raising money so that I am the last generation that will ever have to witness a loved one be taken one memory at a time.
