Did You Know?

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's. Today, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's every 65 seconds.

Helping Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is the disease that you don’t think about until it affects you, or someone you know, personally. It’s the “scary” disease with no cure. The disease that no one wants to talk about. It’s just too frightening to think about. If we did, we would have to imagine someone we love who is now a stranger, even to themselves. Not only a stranger, but someone completely incapable of taking care of themselves at some point in the disease progression. Completely incapable of the everyday things we take for granted. What if you forgot how to brush your teeth? The brush is completely foreign- you, literally, have no idea what it is used for. Someone you love patiently explains it to you and teaches you to use it, but just a few short moments after, it’s forgotten until you do this same dance tomorrow.

Alzheimer's kills more Americans than breast and prostate cancer COMBINED!
