Tell President Obama: Families Facing Alzheimer's Disease Can't Wait

    1. Sponsored by

      Alzheimer's Association

Today, more than 5 million Americans are facing the challenges of Alzheimer's. This number could rise to 16 million by 2050 if we do not act.

Alzheimer's will cost the nation $200 billion this year. This will rise to $1 trillion by 2050, bankrupting families and our health care system.

Alzheimer's can't wait. We need a federal commitment in order to change the course of Alzheimer's disease.

Tell President Obama millions of families are counting on him to fulfill the potential of the National Alzheimer's Project Act.

      My mother is suffering from this terrible disease. I'm concerned about the Baby Boomers as they grow older. Remember, we vote.

      My mother has been affected by this terrible disease. It hurts so bad to see her wilt away. She does not recognize any of us anymore and it is so heartbreaking. We have to find a cure!!
