I’ve witnessed the tremendous struggle – both physical and emotional – that my mother and aunt face in caring for her. I’m privileged to be able to bring my professional expertise and personal experience together to provide the Association the assistance it needs to help others who have family members with Alzheimer’s. I hope that other business professionals will join in the fight against this terrible disease by lending their support to the Association.”

Said Tony Sudler, President & CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association, National Capital Area Chapter: “Contributions of this manner provide a dual impact, 1) they increase the association efficiency, allowing staff to be more productive and 2) they reduce our equipment budget, allowing for more dollars to go toward programs and services.
