Greetings readers, friends, and Marilyn’s Legacy supporters!
Autumn is upon us, and this was always Mom’s favorite season; it’s hard to imagine that she would have turned 82 this past Friday and that December 15th will mark six years since she left us. I miss her so much. As Jess and I are just returning from a lovely trip, I am reminded of the many experiences Mom missed out on due to this horrendous illness – Alzheimer’s disease.
As many of you know, Marilyn’s Legacy was borne of a desire to honor her memory and give purpose to our journey – an unexpected experience that defies all logic. Our mission is to increase Alzheimer’s awareness among the masses as well as raise funds to stop this insidious disease and provide support to enhance quality of life for families currently on this journey.
This month, we embark on our 3rd annual giving campaign. I’m proud to say that because of your generous support, we’ve raised over $10,000 since our inception in 2016. Those funds have been directed to organizations that are leaders in this space. They are driving bold innovative research, advancing national care policies to support caregivers, and working to increase speed, efficiency, and diversity around clinical trials. There is too much good work being done to even begin to touch on all of it, but progress is being made each and every day. We are more hopeful than ever.
Fiscal responsibility is of utmost importance to us at Marilyn’s Legacy, so we can assure you that the organizations who receive funding from us display superior financial stewardship. We know you want your contributions to go straight to the important work taking place, not to paying salaries and overhead. Two of our most important partners, UsAgainstAlzheimer’s and the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, deploy every dollar of donations to the goals of stopping Alzheimer’s and supporting affected families.
Will you join us in the fight to stop Alzheimer’s and in supporting families currently facing this journey each day? Please consider making a one-time or recurring tax-deductible contribution today by visiting http://marilynslegacy.org/donate.
We sincerely appreciate your support of our mission and wish you a blessed autumn and holiday season.
Founder, Marilyn’s Legacy 💜
