THE STORY:

My grandmother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's. This disease, which impacts 5.3 million people and is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States, doesn't see a fraction of the investment of some other leading illnesses. In fact, from 2000-2006 Alzheimer's deaths increased ~50% while stroke, certain cancers, and heart disease-related deaths all decreased. It's time to make Alzheimer's research a priority, for our generation and generations beyond.

From the Alzheimer's Association Homepage: The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care and support and the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer research.

Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
