14 year-old Audrey honors her beloved grandmother. 

“I learned to cherish every moment I had with her” - Audrey

For more than ten years, Audrey watched as her grandmother Arlie slipped further and further away from her as she lived with Alzheimer’s – a disease the 14-year-old is fighting to see end. “This disease forced me to say goodbye to her over and over,” she says.

Audrey lost her grandmother, whom she called Gigi, just a year ago – and Audrey is doing all that she can to honor her and keep her memory alive. Most recently, Audrey rallied friends and family to contribute to her Walk to End Alzheimer’s efforts, raising more than $24,000 for Alzheimer’s research and care and support programs for families like hers. 

“It’s important that we do all we can to create awareness about Alzheimer’s,” Audrey says. “I have friends my age that have also lost their grandparents to this disease – and we need to change this for the next generation.” 

Please help families like Audrey’s who rely on the no-cost care and support programs the Alzheimer’s Association provides to families on their Alzheimer’s journey. From our 24/7 Helpline to our care consultations and support groups, we’re here for those who need us most.

When you make a gift to the Alzheimer's Association, you'll join us in our vital mission as we lead the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection and maximizing quality care and support.
