Thank You to All My Supporters on the Alzheimer's Reading Room

Thank You to All My Supporters on the Alzheimer's Reading Room
Unfortunately, even with the support of so many tireless Alzheimer’s advocates, and with the support of so many readers at the Alzheimer's Reading Room, and even with the strong support of Bob DeMarco, my cause for Alzheimer’s research is not the winner of the $10,000 award in the Kids Who Give contest.

However, the contest was a wonderful experience because I came in contact with so many people who share my passion to make a difference in the course of this disease.

Today, one supporter donated $5000 of his private funds for Alzheimer’s research at BUSM.

I will continue to work hard and pursue my lifelong goal to tackle this disease on multiple fronts, encompassing compassionate care of those afflicted, support for weary caregivers, and research to find treatments and, perhaps, a cure.

Thank you all for your support!

Note from Bob: If you are interested in donating to the BU Alzheimer's Disease Center, contact Max to get the necessary information.  You can acknowledge Max or the Alzheimer's Reading Room along with your donation.
