6.7 MILLION AMERICANS are living with Alzheimer's disease...by 2050 it will be 13 million...WHAT CAN WE DO? It’s a terrible and progressive disease that can truly rob a loved one in their final years as it eventually destroys one's memory and other important mental functions. Memory loss and confusion are the main symptoms, but it can be deadly!
The Alzheimer's Association is all about accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.
