Just One Day a Year—That’s All It Takes…

Often, we feel powerless to control those things in our lives that are most difficult and disruptive.  Alzheimer’s is one of those things.

Imagine if by committing just one day  per year, you and your friends and your family and your co-workers could change the trajectory of Alzheimer’s—and realize our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.  My mom and grandmother had Alzheimer’s—and they’re worth a lot more than just one day per year—but, that one day can change the course of Alzheimer’s disease in Georgia.

You can do that—you can commit to one day a year.  Join us for Alzheimer’s Awareness Day at the Georgia State Capitol—it’s only one day.  Commit to use your VOICE to tell your state senator and your state representative that we need a Georgia Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias State Plan.  When you join us, we will ROCK THE STATE!

Advocacy is not complicated or technical.  You don’t need to be “political.”  The most important ingredient is YOU.

Will you commit right now to take just one day this year to change the course of Alzheimer’s in Georgia?  Will you:

  1. Help us to create a Georgia Alzheimer’s and Related dementias State Plan by sharing with us your concerns about Alzheimer’s?  http://act.alz.org/site/Survey?ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS&SURVEY_ID=12741
  2. Commit to join us at the Georgia State Capitol on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., to use your VOICE to tell your state senator and your state representative your story of your family’s journey with Alzheimer’s?  http://act.alz.org/site/Survey?ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS&SURVEY_ID=15600
  3. Attend an Advocacy Training either in a city near you, or an on-line webinar, to learn the details about the State Plan?  http://act.alz.org/site/PageNavigator/georgiaadvocacy.html1
  4. Commit to send an e-mail, make a phone call, or write a letter—even if you can’t attend Alzheimer’s Awareness Day at the Georgia State Capitol—to ask your Georgia Senator and your Georgia Representative to support Senate Bill 14, the creation of a Georgia Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Plan?

The future of Alzheimer’s and related dementias in Georgia is in your hands—won’t you use your VOICE to help change the future—NOW!
