alzheimers news-a change and a blog

Image result for alzheimers texas a state of mind
the alzheimers association capitol of texas chapter has made
a big change recently
following the lead of chapters in san diego los angeles and chicago
they have withdraw themselves from the alzheimers association

why have they and the other chapters done this
the capital chapter now called
alzheimers texas
is a powerful enough well established organization that can
stand on its own
now all the funds that are raised by the chapter can now be kept locally
to be used in the several counties it serves
making the services it renders to those areas much greater

they also will continue to funnel monies to research since
there are several large universties in texas that are in the lead
in alzheimers research
they are also closely associated to the dkr alzheimers fund
which is a big supporter of alzheimers research in the state

all the local walks will remain the same
but will be done under the name alzheimers texas

i have decided to be a big supporter of this new named group
and what their goals are
i understand why it was done

i will continue to have teams under the organicgreendoctor team name
doing the same walks as we did last year

if you are someone who donated or walked with us last year
the opportunity is still there for you to be involved with us
feel sure that your money and efforts will still be promoting
the same goal as before
to end alzheimers
to find a treatment and cure

the alzheimers texas will continue to send money to continue
one of the research studies that i am in now

i will continue to be a big supporter also of the
national alzheimers association since
it is the organization that has helped turn the corner
on finding a cure for this disease

i will be posting more information in the near future
we need your help
