“What better way to honor my courageous husband than to name the Alzheimer’s Association in our estate plan. His participation in various research projects, as well as his brain donation at death, were his ways of creating a legacy. Planning a gift is my way of creating one of both of us." – Founders Society member, West Falmouth, MA
