Purple Ribbons Show Support for Families & Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Date: June 8, 2019


June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Health Awareness month. 
Flight Attendants are encouraged to participate in the month-long awareness campaign for Alzheimer’s & Brain health issues by displaying a purple ribbon behind your AFA Union pin. 

Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects not only the person afflicted 
but the entire family unit. The illness robs families of their connection to their loved one long before this terrible disease takes their life.
This is our opportunity to come together to increase awareness not only of this debilitating disease, but to also raise awareness of the resources available to assist those families who struggle with a loved one afflicted by this disease.  

Please consider wearing a purple ribbon behind your official Union pin as a way to remind those with family members suffering from this illness that they are not alone.

Help us rid this disease once and for all by donating to our partners
in this cause, The Alzheimer's Association.>
