The Sad Truth

Alzheimer’s and dementia-related illnesses are leading causes of death in the United States. Instead of moving closer to a cure, we are moving closer to the disease with a new person being diagnosed every 65 seconds.

Alzheimer’s is the only top-10 cause of death in the United States with NO cure, means of prevention, or treatment to modify the disease. Approximately 5.7 million people in the U.S. currently have Alzheimer’s disease or a dementia-related illness. The number of Americans with Alzheimer’s is projected to triple to 16 million by 2050.

A cure needs to be identified. NOW.
