GFF Operations Manager Karen Chooses Alzheimer’s Foundation of America as July Charity

July’s Girlfriends Films charity is the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, as selected by GFF Operations Manager Karen. As a result, the foundation will receive a check for $1000 on behalf of Karen in order to help continue its mission to provide optimal care and services to those affected by Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

“I have been honored this month to choose a charity for our company’s monthly donation program,” states Karen. “My husband was diagnosed with early onset Dementia two years ago, and I have watched the man I’ve known and loved for over 40 years become unable to work, remember recent events, and perform ordinary daily activities. His onset was slow, and I didn’t recognize the signs at first. He kept getting lost and didn’t seem to remember the simplest things. Medication doesn’t seem to do much, but we hold out for a cure. I also watched my father, mother-in-law, and father in-law also suffer with this memory stealing disease. You never know if it will happen to you or your family.”

“I have chosen the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America as my charity because this organization is helping raise awareness and educate health care profession and the public at large,” explains Karen. “They also provide care and services to individuals and caregivers confronting dementia through member organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals suffering with Dementia/Alzheimer’s, as well as their families.”

Each month, Girlfriends Films turns to its employees, performers, directors, and adult industry principals to select a charity to support. In 2013, the Girlfriends Films Charity Program donated over $20,000 to a wide array of philanthropic organizations, from medical institutes to animal sanctuaries.
“I hope others will join me and Girlfriends Films to help this wonderful charity,” adds Karen.
