On June 21st, 2019, people around the world come together to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s. The entire Vista Ridge Family Dentistry staff is excited to participate in this event, called The Longest Day, to raise money and create awareness of the disease. We ask you to join Team VRFD, as we support our dear team member Aleysha, in her personal fight against this memory-stealing disease.
We first learned of the work the Alzheimer’s Association is providing from our very own hygienist, Aleysha. She and her family provide care for her grandma, a real mother figure in her life that has helped her to be the wonderful person she is today. Aleysha says, “The Alzheimer’s Association gave me a productive outlet for my frustration and heartbreak. Even if new research fails to cure my Grandma, I am determined to see it through to ensure it can help people like Grandma: people jolted to a halt in the midst of their lives, people no longer able to do what they love, people missing out on family milestones far too soon.”
Help us fight Alzheimer’s!
Team VRFD will also be hosting a bake sale starting at 8:00 am, on Friday, June 21, 2019. We encourage you to come and get some delicious treats! Our team will be baking goodies like cookies, pies, kolaches, brownies, rice krispy treats, cupcakes, banana bread, cheesecakes, and more! It’s not often a dentist will encourage you to indulge in sweet treats, but this sweet cause is a worthy reason indeed!
Help us reach our goal and support the fight against Alzheimer’s. Come by our bake sale on June 21st, 2019, or donate to Team VRFD. Together we can fight the darkness on the day with the most light, The Longest Day.
