The Judy Fund News - May 2024

View in browser

Mother's Day is a time to reflect on the mothers and grandmothers like Judy Gelfand and so many others who've shaped our lives. On Mother's Day, and every day, you make a tremendous impact in the fight against Alzheimer's. Because of your generosity, we can continue to support the Women's Alzheimer's Research Initiative (WARI), which illuminates gender differences in Alzheimer's and strives to unlock the mysteries of a disease that disproportionately affects women. Together, we continue to think about and appreciate all the moms taken from us by this disease, and we look forward with determination to our shared vision of a world without Alzheimer's. Thank you for your ongoing support of The Judy Fund.
