Hi everyone! I am helping support the Alzheimer's Association to advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and a cure for Alzheimers. A family that mine has known for over 10 years, lost one of their family members to Alzheimer's and the lost affected everyone. I need your support to help find a cure to end this disease. Here are some statistics about to give you an overview of how serious and relevant Alzheimers has become in our world today.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. 1 and 3 Seniors dies from Alzheimer's or another form of Dementia. Also, every 66 seconds, someone develops the disease. In 2015, over an estimated 15 million people were caregivers for people with this disease and 18.1 billion hours of unpaid care. These are astonishing facts but we can continue to support and fund research to help decrease these numbers.
For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide. 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.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
