“I am very excited to take part in this event for an organization that I deeply care about” Dr. Hasty said.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 02, 2015
Dr. Lisa Hasty has been invited to join the cast of the 2015 Dancing Stars of Atlanta supporting the Alzheimer's Association. She has decided to step out of her comfort zone and dance in support of this worthy cause.
Dancing Stars is an exciting benefit for the Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter. Reinventing the popular show, “Dancing with the Stars”, this fundraising event is comprised of approximately 12 local celebrity dancers paired with 12 professional dancers, all raising funds by gaining votes! Then the dancers come together to compete in a one-night gala dance competition on May 2, 2015 at the Loews Hotel in Atlanta.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.
Dancing Stars aim is to support research and the programs and services provided for individuals with Alzheimer's disease, as well as their families and caregivers. Presently, someone develops Alzheimer's every 67 seconds, and this disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the country and the only one that is increasing. Without your support, the Alzheimer's Association will cease to aid those who are affected by this devastating disease.
Never one to shy away from new experiences and others in need, Dr. Lisa Hasty has decided to participate to support a cause that means very much to her. Her mother has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. “I am very excited to take part in this event for an organization that I deeply care about” Dr. Hasty said. “The Alzheimer’s Association researches prevention, treatments, and a cure, but also helps the millions affected, like my mom, find care, support and resources.”
