My father and I were honored to accept the Shriver Award from Senator Edward Markey (D-Mass.) at the Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C.
Dear Family and Friends,

The past several years have been an amazing testament to the power of advocacy and public policy in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.

And thanks to outstanding supporters like you, The Judy Fund has been in the forefront of this battle.

Through the tireless work of the Alzheimer's Association advocates, ambassadors and legislative champions in Congress, we've had tremendous success — from historic funding increases to the advancement of legislation to improve care and support.

Alzheimer's funding at the National Institutes of Health has seen historic increases, thanks to the work of advocates, ambassadors and legislative champions.
We can't let up now. That's why I urge you to make a gift to The Judy Fund at the Alzheimer's Association to support all we do, including our efforts to raise awareness and concern about this disease among elected leaders and policymakers.
Santa Monica
The Judy Fund was the largest team in the Santa Monica Walk to End Alzheimer's® and we raised $10,315 for the fight against this disease.
The Judy Fund team turns out in force in Santa Monica

As I write you, The Judy Fund has just participated in the Santa Monica Walk to End Alzheimer's®. As the captain of Team Judy Fund, I am proud to say that with the enthusiastic support of employees and Associates from Partners Trust and Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman LLP, we were the #1 team at the Santa Monica Walk. Over 35 members strong, together our team raised $10,315!

The Judy Fund News
The 2016 edition of The Judy Fund News offers an in-depth look at how, through our work with the Alzheimer's Association, especially our more than 500 Alzheimer's ambassadors, The Judy Fund advocates for public policies to change the trajectory of this disease.
Watch your mailbox for The Judy Fund newsletter

This year's edition of The Judy Fund News is on its way to you — look for it in your mailbox! I'm very excited about the 2016 issue and theme — "A Voice for Alzheimer's" — which includes an interview with Chief Public Policy Officer Robert Egge, pieces featuring several of our bipartisan champions in Congress, and a recap of the efforts and impact of our ambassadors.

I carry on this work in honor of my mother Judy, who inspired our family to begin this fight — and to work with all of you to move our cause forward for all our mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, and grandchildren.

Your support drives ALL of the success we've helped bring about, especially during 2016.

And with your continued support of The Judy Fund, together we'll move closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.

Happy Fall!
