In 1983 Ronal Reagan launch a national campaign against Alzheimer’s disease, and declared November National Alzheimer’s Disease Month.  Thanks, in part, to the former president who would succumb to the disease himself in 2004, awareness on a national and global scale has been raised. Yet the numbers of Alzheimer's sufferers and the financial hardship the disease causes on their loved ones continues to grow at an alarming rate.  Now every 69 seconds someone is diagnosed with the disease and almost 5 and a half million Americans have it. This does not take into account the countless many that are affected as loved ones, coworkers and friends.

We have doubled our funding in the past two years to support new research initiatives and are counting on your support, as are those who so desperately need better treatments to alleviate the symptoms of Alzheimer's. During this giving season, contribute $25 to end Alzheimer’s disease. Only 8% of our funds are used on overhead expenses.
