Did you know that one in every ten people age 65 and older in America have Alzheimer’s Disease?* Freedom Pharmacy, in an effort to lower these numbers, is partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association® & other GNP pharmacies across the nation during June to raise funds for advancing research and raising awareness for care and support.
This devastating disease affects over five million Americans. Early detection & diagnosis are important as they provide individuals with the best opportunities for treatment, support & planning for the future.
Pick up your free information during June on the “Ten Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s” in Freedom Pharmacy’s lobby at 3901 E. Colonial Dr. Orlando, FL 32803. While you’re here, please consider making a donation to our special jar to support the fight to end Alzheimer’s.** Then, on the summer solstice, Wednesday, June 21, we will join with supporters across the nation for “The Longest Day,” the national event to heighten the awareness for this life-threatening disease affecting our loved ones.
We hope you will join our efforts by posting the link below to your social media each week in June and encouraging your friends and colleagues to, “Please support ‘The Longest Day’ event on June 21 by visiting Freedom Pharmacy in June, making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association,® or hosting your own event.” Together, we can help make an impact and increase the quality of life of what are supposed to be, “the golden years.” Please share this link.
Note: Good Neighbor Pharmacy (GNP) is the inaugural sponsor of this event.
*According to the Alzheimer’s Association®
Their free, nationwide Alzheimer’s Helpline at 1-800-272-3900 is available 24/7 for info and referrals.
** All donations will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association®. Per the association, they use almost 80% of all donations for Alzheimer’s care, support, research, awareness and advocacy.
