Volunteer stories

 

"When I realized I would be receiving education so that I could meet people and help them to learn more about the disease, I knew I had found my niche. I thought: ‘This is a GIFT.’ I can do this for people I love, and for others who most need the information."

— Yolonda Simon, volunteer community educator and TrialMatch® participant

 

"The Alzheimer’s [volunteer] community is its own bright light, bringing the best out of people. It allows families to connect and honor those they love, support one another, and show future generations that making a difference can be done just by taking the first step forward in the right direction."

— Carlos Olivas III, caregiver, advocate and Walk to End Alzheimer's volunteer

 

"As I work to help families facing Alzheimer’s, I am in the business of hope. There are no guarantees in this life, but we continue to work, and we continue to hope. I take that responsibility to heart, for my family and for yours."

— Ellen Frinks, clinical research nurse, Alzheimer’s Association program delivery volunteer and event participant
