Shop the Alzheimer's Foundation eStore

At Philly Sports Talk Now! we like to share with the readers of our blog. This holiday season, it's important to remember all the people that are affected by Alzheimer's Disease. One way to support the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, they are an organization that is committed to providing optimal care and services to people who are confronting dementia, through it's member organizations and dedicating itself to improving the quality of life for that individual. This disease is a progressive, degenerative disorder that strikes the brain's nerve cells, resulting in memory loss, thinking and language skills, and behavioral changes.

One way of supporting the Alzheimer's Foundation of America is through a gift of donation, or especially now that the holidays are upon us, simply shopping at their e-Store directly benefits the foundation. About 5 million Americans suffer from this disease and the foundation is an organization that is committed to finding answers and providing the quality services and care that the patients need.

Imagine a world where you suddenly lose all of your memory or part of it, enough to drastically affect your life. It's a daunting disease for the family of the patients, constant care and supervision is required, and often families affected by this disease don't know where to turn for help. As a person who is affected by this disease you become dependent on others more than ever, the American Alzheimers Foundation of America is there to assist patients and caregivers, and families with information about this dreaded disease.


This holiday season, remember others and care for people who are less fortunate than you. I know about this disease first hand, my mother had this disease for two years before she died, it was terrible to see that your mother doesn't even know who you are anymore, and loses all touch of the world she lived in prior to her passing. The disease starts off slowly but the clues start early on, and then it progresses to a point where you can't even care for yourself sometimes. The Alzheimer's Foundation is committed to finding answers for a cure, and current services for people who need to get in touch with the proper agencies to get help.
