109 - Bonus – Akum – Research & fundraising

109 - Bonus – Akum – Research & fundraising

How could I resist a humble fundraising assistance request? When it comes from a young man that wants to cure Alzheimer's, I couldn't. Instead of just resharing posts on Instagram, we created this bonus episode.

In this bonus episode, I talk to Akum Dhillion. He is a young man who was inspired by his Grandmother to go into Alzheimer's research. When he reached out to me to ask for assistance boosting his Instagram account, I asked if he would also like a bonus episode. Of course, he said yes.

I think you'll really enjoy this short, heartwarming story about a young person wanting and succeeding at making a difference. At the tender age of 12, Akum decided he was going to cure Alzheimer's.

What's an Alzheimer's podcast to do but help?

Your donation supports vital research, programs, and resources for those living with Alzheimer's. Akum is working with the Virginia chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.   They are the world's largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research.

Some of the things the Alzheimer's Assoc. funds are: Care & Support. They work nationally & locally to provide care & support for those affected by Alzheimer's & other dementias. As the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research. The association is committed to advancing vital research towards methods of treatment, prevention, and ultimately, a cure.

Finally, and this is where Akum & I play a part, The Association is the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy. The Association advocates for critical Alzheimer's research and care initiatives at the state and federal level
