As a an individual and a published author who always strives for truthfulness, I would not say the following if I didn’t believe it:
AlzAuthors offers the most comprehensive collection of books and blogs about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia.
And in the spirit of full-transparency, I am on the Board of Directors for AlzAuthors but would not be on the Board if I didn’t believe in this organization’s Mission and Vision:
A community of authors sharing Alzheimer’s and dementia stories to light the way for others to lift the silence and stigma of Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
I was recently privileged to lead our entire management team through the legal maze of applying to be a non-profit corporation with IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Almost without exception, our management team has footed every bill that has come our way and we have gladly done so. Blessedly, late last year and early this year, we were on the receiving end of benefactors who believed in our work and generously helped us become a more global presence in the world. Their generosity encouraged us to think bigger.
Alzheimer’s and other dementias seem to be here to stay for now, but so are we. We will endeavor to always fulfill our Core Commitments as we move forward to make an impact in the lives of those affected by a disease that is always fatal.
CONNECT writers and readers by providing easy access to books, blogs, and other resources.
HONOR the personal journeys of those impacted by Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
PROMOTE works from around the world, welcoming a diversity of experiences.
ADVANCE the understanding Alzheimer’s and other dementias through collective knowledge.
ENCOURAGE healing by embracing the power of vulnerability, letting others know they are not alone.
