I created Alzheimer's Brain Box at the age of 16 when my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Frustrated by the lack of a cure, I decided to focus on ways to improve Alzheimer's patients' quality of life while raising research funds. In 2018, I launched Alzheimer's Brain Box, the sole vendor of customized care packages for Alzheimer's patients. Since its inception, Alzheimer's Brain Box has partnered with the Alzheimer's Association and the AARP to raise research funds and awareness about how minorities and women are disproportionately affected by the disease. Alzheimer's Brain Box is not only a vendor of care packages, but also a symbol of defiance against Alzheimer's. No matter our age or background, we can all contribute to the fight. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for fighting with us.
