Walk for a Cure!

2017 Midcoast Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Walk for a Cure!

At Seasons of Smiles, we like to help out and support our communities. This year, we were involved with Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Midcoast Rainbow Run. In October, Dr. Medina’s office and their families participated in the 2017 Midcoast Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

This event is near and dear to my heart. In November of 2016, my husband Tim was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (EOAD). Tim was 50 at the time and we never considered that this was something we would be tackling. The number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease is growing — and growing fast. …

Of the estimated 5.5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2017, an estimated 5.3 million are age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals are under age 65 and have younger-onset Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

There is no cure at the moment for this disease but there is hope for our future generations who will be affected. Our team raised $2300.00 to help towards treatments and a possible cure. For more information or to make a donation, visit ALZ.ORG.
