Just a quick Update.

Started really looking for work and networking in March. It will be a process as I have a few other things I am working on at the same time!

As you all know, I have been advocating for Alzheimer's disease at a state and federal level. I do not get paid for this, but having cared for my wife Chris, and watched her only sister die from this terrible disease, and knowing the next generation will also have some that die from the disease..... I must fight to find a Cure and treatment! It truly is a staggering disease for our country and over 5 million families suffering right now.



It is the most expensive disease in America!



I am Washington DC. Might as well give it a "radioman" jump!

How'bout starting a foundation that puts on rides which raises $$$ to fight Alzheimer's? In other words, people get others to sponsor them on a per mile bases much like walk-a-thons to fight cancer. This way you could work, ride, and fight Alzheimer's! Think if you just got some of the riders who go to Sturgis to get sponsorships along with other rides and/or have a single day of each year carved out to Ride To Fight Alzheimer's?

Thank you..... I lost my mother to Alzheimer's disease. She was 47 at the start of it and my dad and I took care of her for 11 years until she passed. I genuinely appreciate your time and effort for this horrid, agonizing disease.

It is an Honor to be able to speak out for all those that have lost their lives or our losing their lives and the families that have been so impacted by this disease.

You know what toll it takes. Hugs to you!

There were over 900 people attending this year to take the message to our elected Officials. They were from every state and it was a powerful time together.

Of course it is full of emotion as so many have had family member with the disease, lost to the disease and afraid of the disease in their futures. But working together we can make the changes in Funding for research and find treatments and cures! There is hope, but political changes take a long time.



This is the Oregon group of 11 that worked together to meet with our State representatives. We had good meetings and hope they will follow through with there Support, Votes and commitments.




Here I am with My congressman Kurt Schrader. Truly hope that he will help us with current requests for more funding directly for Alzheimers research at NIH. Of course I will be following up with him and his staff to make sure he does!




This is a non partisan Issue. Here we are with Congressman Greg Walden
