The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease.

Rona Siaca, Director of Community Relations from Brandywine Living at Savoy in Queens, NY, has joined the Walk Committee and will be walking at Little Bay Park on October 7th.

Rona said about her grandmother:

“Years ago, before she passed away, my grandmother was called senile.  There was no hope, no name for her symptoms, and no treatment available. Today, we know her symptoms were caused by undiagnosed Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.”

 

“Brandywine shares our mission to support all affected by Alzheimer’s while we advocate and raise funds for a cure, and they are just two miles from our Queens Walk location,” said Lucy DeNardo.
