Annemiek Storm has been in the long-term care insurance business for 15 years. As a result of that experience she has become a passionate advocate for funding research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s as she has witnessed close to 50 percent of all claims go to cover the costs associated with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Storm started walking in the “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” in Sacramento in 1999 in order to raise funding and awareness of this devastating illness. She walked again Oct. 6. Her personal goal is to reach $100,000.00 in donations to this organization.

But she knows there is much more that must be done and she has a vision to offer more education and more support for families who fall victim to this illness. To fulfill this vision, she has created the Annemiek Storm Alzheimer’s Research and Education Endowment Fund at the El Dorado Community Foundation.

This fund will allow her to grant funding for programs and services here in El Dorado County as well as to continue the efforts at state and national levels to find a cure.

“Alzheimer’s is a human tragedy; loved ones are living, but are lost to their families,” Storm said.

“It is a financial tragedy as well, not only for the families, but for the whole of society because most Alzheimer’s patients end up needing to access Medicaid (Medi-Cal in California),” she said.

The Foundation is a recognized California state 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Any gift of any amount can be sent at any time to the Annemiek Storm Alzheimer’s Research and Education Endowment Fund online at eldoradocf.org or checks to: The El Dorado Community Foundation, PO Box 1388, Placerville 95667.

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Sacramento office serves seven counties, including El Dorado County. The Association operates a 24-hour hotline at 1-800-272-3900.

Charitable contributions to support Annemiek Storm’s Oct. 6 “Walk to End Alzheimer’s ma be made online at http://act.alz.org/goto/annemiek.storm or checks payable to: Alzheimer’s Association, c/o Annemiek Storm, PO Box 3010, Diamond Springs 95619.
