Those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease are often the last to know they have developed this unpreventable disease. Alzheimer’s is more than just a loss of memory; it’s a disease that kills more people each year than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.

You can help America’s Alzheimer’s patients by signing our petition demanding Medicare step up and cover 100% of long-term care for any person with Alzheimer’s or other dementias whose doctor has recommended it
