My mother's battle with Alzheimer's disease nearly destroyed me. But it didn't. It made me realize how important it is to do my part in the search for a cure.

Proud Volunteer for the Alzheimer's Association:
Team Sally Lou has raised over $25,000 since our first Walk2EndAlz in 2018. 100% of donations go to the Alzheimer's Association. These critical funds support families facing dementia, and most importantly, they drive research for a cure.

I was honored to speak at the Opening Event for the Alzheimer's Association's 2021 Massachusetts AIM Advocacy Week. In this clip, I shared my experiences as an unpaid caregiver to advocate for An Act to Improve Alzheimer's and Dementia Care in Senior Care Options Programs.
It was an honor to record this video for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Advocacy division asking Congresswoman Clark (MA-05) to expand access to credit for nonprofits during the COVID-19 crisis.
Drug companies are desperately trying to end Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. It was an honor to share my personal experience with some of the very doctors and scientists searching for a cure.
My first annual Yoga2EndAlz fundraiser in the same park my mom took us all to growing up. It was one of her favorite places on earth.
One of my mom's favorite things to do as her illness progressed was to ride around in my car. We'd drive around aimlessly and when she could no longer talk to me, I'd sing to her. She loved The Doors!
2021 marked our 4th Walk in the Pioneer Valley Walk to End Alzheimer's. Our total fundraise to date is over $25,000! All donations go directly to the Alzheimer's Association. Thank you so much to all who have supported us! The first survivor is out there!
