Raising awareness of Alzheimer's Disease

The Alliance for Aging Research, with a grant from the Metlife Foundation is raising awareness of the epidemic of Alzheimer's Disease to the public for help in increasing the government funding to research and support this terrible disease. As the Baby Boomer generation ages, it will push the numbers of people who will be afflicted with Alzheimer's to epidemic proportions. The need for public awareness to tell their congressional representatives is now!

These videos will make you aware of what the disease is and the current strides being made to fight it. Alzheimer's is not merely something we just have heard about from our parents and grandparents any longer. It is going to slam into the Baby Boomer generation without mercy and our country will not only feel it's effects first hand, but our economy will feel the burden unless we get serious...NOW!

Talk to your family about it, tell your friends about it and make your congressional representatives know that the time to act is NOW!

Thanks for your comment and any help in spreading the word or if you contact your gov. representatives to support funding for Alzheimer's.
