On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association in North Carolina — our Board of Directors, entire staff, and the Alzheimer’s community in our great state, we want to wish you well this Thanksgiving. We know this year may be altering traditions and plans, but we hope the spirit of Thanksgiving still offers a time to reflect on all we are are grateful for.
All of us at the Association will celebrate the day with the thoughts of your goodwill that go beyond just this one special day. We wish to thank each and every one of you for all you have done to help us as we work toward our mission: to 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.
One of the greatest joys of tackling a pervasive and perplexing challenge is working side by side with inspiring supporters like you — especially this year with unprecedented challenges for those we serve together. Your tireless fight to end Alzheimer’s — to rally support, educate the public, find new sources of funds, and comfort those affected by the disease — continues to inspire all of us.
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lightened the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer
With gratitude and warm wishes this holiday,
