“Hurricane Fiona has highlighted the difficult economic situation facing the Alzheimer’s community and their families. Now more than ever, our trust is more important. We are extremely grateful to all sponsors for their great help,” said Teresa Seda, founder of the organization.

Over the years, there have been many allies who have helped this organization, including singer Victor Manuel, who commented, “As long as God gives me health, I will always be there to help improve the quality of life for patients. and guardians.

For her part, Yvonne Rivera, executive director of Fundación De Frente al Alzheimer, Inc. (DFAZ), concluded: “We want to thank the Francisco Carvajal Foundation, which for the second year joins our efforts with the Francisco Carvajal Foundation, thus extending the reach of families affected by financial assistance.
