WBHI is focused on understanding why women are affected with neurological disorders more so than men, and finding solutions to help improve women’s aging brain health. It is important that men understand the issue because there is a reasonable chance that a female in your life will be impacted.

I have first-hand experience of the devastating impact on family and friends who have been afflicted and affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. These high functioning, independent and loving individuals became a mere shadow of themselves. I actively support the Women’s Brain Health Initiative because of their efforts to combat brain aging diseases that affect women.

Too early we started to lose my mother, bit by little heart-breaking bit, long before her body gave out. Her life and experience have inspired us to support research and education in women’s brain health through the Women’s Brain Health Initiative.

It astounds me how much the scientific establishment ignores fundamental differences in how the brain ages differently between men and women. The Women’s Brain Health Initiative is the single most directed effort to improve our understanding of how women’s brains age differently from those of men.

Women’s brain health is so incredibly important, and we’re just beginning to understand how different it is from men’s brain health. Giving to the Women’s Brain Health Initiative can give us more scientific facts that can affect the way we live our lives, and prevent what happens when our brains suffer from these terrible diseases.

It was frightening to learn that women suffer from depression, stroke, and dementia twice as much as men, yet most research studies still focus on men. I founded the Women’s Brain Health Initiative to combat brain disorders that affect women as they age, and also to educate people on what they can do to stay brain healthy longer. I hope you’ll help us prove women’s grey matter matters.

Sometimes we take our minds for granted. That’s why the Women’s Brain Health Initiative has struck such a chord with me. Let’s work together to ensure that major strides are made in women’s brain research.

I never understood what the impact of my mother’s dementia would have until it became a reality. In those rare moments of clarity, when the fog lifts, she’d turn to me and say, “This is no life.” I support the Women’s Brain Health Initiative’s focus, and I hope you join me in their fight to focus more resources on brain aging disorders that affect women.

When it comes to diet, it's important to make informed decisions about what you put in your body. I'm delighted to support Memory Morsels which not only encourages us to enjoy delicious brain healthy meals, but also helps the important work of the Women's Brain Health Initiative.
