“With 16 other caregivers and their loved ones, I participated in an awareness project which was the work and inspiration of fellow advocate, Bakhus Saba of Canada, to create the video, “Alzheimer’s/Dementia Knows No Borders.” I served as convener to the ClergyAgainstAlzheimer’s network and co-edited a book of interfaith meditations, “Seasons of Caring: Meditations for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers.” I am a board member of B.A.B.E.S. (Beating Alzheimer’s by Embracing Science) and a founding member of three national networks, ActivistsAgainstAlzheimer’s, WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s, and ClergyAgainstAlzheimer’s. Together we are working to demand the urgency and commitment needed by our political, business and civic leaders to achieve the bold but doable goal of ending Alzheimer’s disease by 2020. I’ve written to every member of Congress, asking them to make the vision of the National Alzheimer’s Project Act a reality, to dedicate sufficient funding to advance research, and to cosponsor the HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act and the Alzheimer’s disease semipostal.”
