We cannot ignore the startling and sad statistics:

Alzheimer’s disease is the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S.

Alzheimer’s disease triples healthcare costs for Americans aged 65 or older

An estimated 5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s

Two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease are women

Alzheimer’s is the only major cause of death for which there is no treatment/cure

Alzheimer’s affects the entire family!

Hopefully these facts will give you a better appreciation of how serious a problem Alzheimer’s disease is and the importance of funding and research.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the only nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to eliminating Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, providing and enhancing care and support for all affected and reducing the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
