Alzheimer’s is now the third leading cause of death in the United States. Over 40 MILLION people worldwide have Alzheimer’s or dementia and over 5 MILLION Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. Make no mistake, this disease is the epidemic of the 21st Century.
Alzheimer’s takes a devastating toll on families and the financial impact on our economy will be unlike anything we’ve ever seen, if we don’t find a cure. Bottom line – this disease affects everyone. On this page, you can watch videos from Alzheimer’s patients, their families, advocates, and policy makers. To locate the Alzheimer’s stories relevant to you, please use the search feature, in the upper right corner of this page, to start watching and learning.
Every person you see in these videos, has participated in this project because they understand the stakes are high and we must ALL help shatter the stigma. More awareness means more money for research and a cure. If you’re moved by these stories, please share them with your local, Alzheimer’s communities.
