Larry was diagnosed with Early onset Alzheimer's disease over two years ago at the age of 52. Alzheimer's is not a disease of old age. Early onset Alzheimer's affect people younger than 65. Up to 5 percent of the more than 5 million Americans with Alzheimer's have younger onset.
Many people with early onset are in their 40s and 50s. They have families, careers or are even caregivers themselves when Alzheimer's disease strikes. In the United States it is estimated that approximately 200,000 people have early onset.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
