Alzheimer’s disease is tragic and irreversible and has become a national crisis and global epidemic. Having witnessed the enormous emotional, medical, and financial challenges it has created for friends and family caring for their loved ones with dementia has caused me to be a part of finding a solution. Through my support at the Alzheimer’s Association, I feel connected to many in our community that are experiencing this tragic diagnosis.

In the Central Coast – which includes Santa Barbara, Ventura, Santa Maria, and San Luis Obispo – the Alzheimer’s Association has a goal of raising $750,000 in 2021 and hopes to increase its fundraising to $787,500 in 2022.
