The 7 Summits Climb for Alzheimer's: Memories are Everything is a year-long challenge by mountain climber and Alzheimer's disease advocate Alan Arnette to scale the 7 Summits, the highest peaks on each continent. Alan climbs in memory of his mother, who passed away in 2009 from Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, with another person newly diagnosed every 70 seconds. It is estimated to affect more than 5 million people in the United States and more than 25 million people worldwide. That's why Alan chose to climb the 7 Summits to raise awareness of the impact of this debilitating disease and $1 million to advance Alzheimers research as it is his hope that scientists can find a way to slow or stop Alzheimer's disease.
A quick thank you for your time and for the work you are doing to find answers to eliminate the Alzheimer’s nightmare. Every step forward gets us closer to the answer. Since I have it, I am one of many that have to deal with Alzheimer’s on a daily basis. Some days are wonderful, others not so. However, all days are ones we look at for learning and for extended hope.
The webinars Cure Alzheimer’s does keep us aware, keep us involved and get us to do our damnedest to stay positive. Thank you for bringing energy for one curmudgeon ... me.
Keep it coming!!Robert (Skip) Savoia
