My family was personally affected by Alzheimer's when we lost my Grandma Joan to the disease. At the time, I was too young to understand the gravity of this loss. But now, as I look forward and make plans for my own future, it is not lost on me that this disease took someone from our family before, and could do it again. Unfortunately, others have and will face this loss as well.
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. Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging and is not just memory loss. Alzheimer's is a progressive and fatal disease that kills nerves and tissues in the brain, which affects an individuals ability to remember, think, plan and ultimately function.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
