Tanya Tucker is calling on her fans for help with a cause she holds very close to her heart… Alzheimer’s.

In her efforts to help end Alzheimer’s, Tanya called on her fans for help by posting to her social media accounts. She began with her Facebook page, saying,

I’m walking to help reclaim the future for millions. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research, care and support. I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer’s Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s.  For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.

On Nov. 12, Tanya posted a photo of her and Glen Campbell’s oldest daughter, Debby, getting ready for the walk.
