The Alzheimer's Coalition of Henderson County has an idea for your lunch plans on Wednesday, May 22.

Coalition members are now taking orders for another Hamburger Hump Day.

Burgers, with the fixings are $6. Call 903-681-0663 to place an order. You can pick up up your burger from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m..

Jamie Fizer said it's important to get your order in to make sure you get a meal..

“Last year, we ran out of hamburgers,” Fizer said. “This year, we ordered more.”

In 2018, the event raised about $2,000 for the cause.

They'll set up at the Groom and Sons Hardware Parking Lot on S. Palestine Street.

The Alzheimer's Coalition of Henderson County was formed to provide support services for caregivers affected by the disease and related dementias. They offer respite services for caregivers.

According to the Alzheimer's Coalition statistics, about 4.5 million American's have it. The disease is progressive, irreversible and, to date, incurable. It is the most common cause of dementia.

Alzheimer's caregivers often have to sit all day with their stricken spouses or parents or family members. Respite care gives a break to those care givers.
