As part of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s proposed budget, money will be added to support a new dementia unit in the state government. For the first time, there would be a dedicated office to handle issues related to the disease.
Jennifer Lepard, the Michigan Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association president, said action like the governor is taking wouldn’t be possible without support.
Support like the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
They held their 27th annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the Lansing capital.
Hundreds of people from around the state rallied together to walk, talk, and raise money in hopes of one day finding a cure.
In some way, or somehow, this disease affects our friends and family, those we know and love.
It is personal.
