The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.

AT LEAST FIVE MILLION FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE IN AMERICA SUFFER FROM ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE. Their FIFTEEN MILLION CAREGIVERS are giving up their jobs, benefits, opportunities for promotions and raises, and their social lives to care for these individuals.

Healthcare for people with AD will cost 236 BILLION DOLLARS in 2016 ALONE! 

Sadly, these are not the worst effects of this disease. It destroys memories, families, and millions of lives. Alzheimer's is the SIXTH LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA.

TOGETHER WE CAN FIGHT ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE! If you can spare a few dollars, please click on the link below to donate:
