As one of our newsletter readers, you probably know what a devastating disease Alzheimer’s is.  Right now there are more than 5 million Americans suffering from it-210,000 in Illinois alone-and countless others caring for them.  Every 71 seconds someone new is diagnosed.

Your donations help our experienced professionals provide the programs and services that make coping with this disease possible.  Funds also support researchers in their quest to find better treatments and, eventually, a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

Thank you.
