Facts about #Alzheimers disease and how you can help create a world without it

Alz Assn LOGOAlzheimer’s disease is the nation‘s largest underfunded public health threat.

Currently, there are no survivors of Alzheimer‘s disease.

Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.

Alzheimer’s disease kills more Americans than diabetes, and more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.

Alzheimer’s disease is the only cause of death among the top 10 in America without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression.

While age is the greatest risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease is not normal aging.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research.

Alzheimer’s research offers genuine, tangible hope.
