Tony Moreno, a longtime Queens civic leader who was instrumental in the creation of Elmhurst Park, passed away last week. Moreno was former chairman and 26-year member of Community Board 4 and a member of Communities of Maspeth and Elmhurst Together (COMET) for 28 years Nick Pennachio, a longtime friend who spent 26 years on the community board with Moreno, recalled the huge impact his late friend had on the community. “So many people who exist, contribute nothing, die and are forgotten in a week,” Pennachio said. “This guy is never going to be forgotten.” One of Moreno’s greatest achievements was his work in the creation of Elmhurst Park, which replaced a former KeySpan gas tank site at 57th and Grand avenues. Pennachio recalled that a Home Depot was proposed for the site, but Moreno had read about a similar project in Suffolk County where brownfields were converted into green space. “He did so much work on it, they should have named it Moreno Park,” Pennachio said. Moreno was also active politically. He worked on campaigns for former councilwoman Helen Sears and helped elect Congressman Joe Crowley to his first term in the House of Representatives. “My heart and prayers are with Tony Moreno’s family and friends,” Crowley said in a statement. “A longtime activist, Tony helped forge a better and stronger community in Queens with his energy and passion. He will be sorely missed.”

Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only cause of death among the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed. Currently, there are more than 5.4 million Americans living with the disease, and it is estimated by 2050, someone in the United States will develop Alzheimer’s every 33 seconds, with a total number of individuals living with the disease as high as 16 million. Alzheimer’s is the most expensive disease in America. Forbes magazine in a March 2017 article stated “Alzheimer’s staggering $259 billion cost could break Medicare.” Advocacy at the local, state, and federal level is necessary to ensure funds are allocated to help advance the research needed to find an effective treatment, and ultimately a cure for Alzheimer’s. In 2016, for every $100 spent on funding Alzheimer’s research, $16,000 was spent by Medicare and Medicaid caring for those with the disease. Alzheimer’s Association volunteer advocates from Brooklyn and Queens have taken part in awareness-raising meetings with elected officials to discuss the urgent need to take action. Brooklyn resident George Valentin met with Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, a committed supporter in the fight to end Alzheimer’s at the beginning of Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. Valentin and his wife, Walea, were his mother’s caregivers for years, until she passed away from Alzheimer’s. The experience inspired Valentin to take action to help others in similar circumstances. He became an advocate at the 2017 Alzheimer's Advocacy Forum on Capitol Hill this past March. “When my mother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease was confirmed, and as the disease progressed, it finally became necessary for her to be in a nursing home with round-the-clock-care,” he said. “There, I saw firsthand the need to advocate for more staff training for those caring for Alzheimer’s patients.” Promoting The Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA) and a $414 million increase for federal Alzheimer's research funding for FY2018 are the focus of advocates when meeting with their elected officials. Valentin recalled, “When I found the Alzheimer's Association, I took advantage of the information on their website and called the 24/7 Helpline whenever I needed advice or felt overwhelmed,” Valentin said. “I started volunteering with the Association, telling my story, so others would become aware of the resources available to them. “ For more information or to get involved, visit alz.org/nyc or call (800) 272-3900.
