These days, almost everyone knows someone who has suffered from Alzheimer’s. Even if you haven’t been affected by it personally, you probably know about the havoc it wreaks on older people’s lives. It’s a debilitating, degenerative brain disease that slowly strips the sufferer of basic functions. It can be incredibly difficult for both patients and their families to deal with. Therefore, it’s important that we do everything we can to ensure that we can find a way to fight this disease and its symptoms. You may not be a scientist or a doctor, but now, you can do your part by participating in the East Texas Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Learn more, so you can get involved.
The East Texas Walk to End Alzheimer’s is taking place on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 7:30 a.m. until noon. It’s all happening at the Heritage Plaza here in Longview. Since this is an event that’s taking place in your community, it will be simple and easy to get to, so you should go and show your support. Whether you want to walk for the people you know have been affected by the disease or just want to learn more about symptoms and prevention, this is something you should look into.
About the Walk
Of course, you will be walking during this event, but there’s so much more to it than that. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn about Alzheimer’s and its effects.
