People suffering from Alzheimer’s—Alzheimer’s is type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the US and every 67 seconds someone in the US develops the disease. 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
This is a terrible disease that many families face. Our team member, Denise, shared her experience as both her grandmother and mother were stricken with this horrible disease.
“No one can understand how hard it is until they’ve gone through it. To see your parent that was so active, caring, loving and talkative change to being like your child is a very hard thing.”
It seems like some of the smartest, most active and even healthy people are getting Alzheimer’s and we need a cure! Join our campaign to support the Alzheimer’s Association and help find a cure for this terrible disease!
