Join the Fight End Alzheimer’s

ADD YOUR VOICE TO END ALZHEIMER’S! 

Alzheimer's is the most expensive disease in the United States. It costs tax payers $20 million every hour. And the cost isn’t just financial — one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, and more than 5 million Americans are living with this disease.

Investing in medical research has a proven history of saving lives. This is why we need you to tell Congress to make Alzheimer's a priority by increasing research funding.  

On March, 29 2017, more than 1,200 Alzheimer's Association advocates from all 50 states will flood Capitol Hill to ask Congress for this critical funding. Add your voice by joining our Thunderclap. The louder our voices, the more awareness we raise. Increased awareness = increased funding, which brings us closer to a world without Alzheimer's.


  • Help us make some noise! Add your voice to help end Alzheimer's.

    You've added your voice before to fight Alzheimer's.  The 5 million+ Americans living with this disease need your support again.

    As Alzheimer's Association advocates from 50 states head to Capitol Hill later this month to tell congress to invest in critical Alzheimer's research, we'll be launching a Thunderclap to make our message even louder.

    The facts: Alzheimer's is the most expensive disease in the United States. It costs tax payers $175 billion a year. And the cost isn’t just financial — one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, and more than 5 million Americans are living with this disease.

    Investing in medical research has a proven history of saving lives. This is why we need you to tell Congress to make Alzheimer's a priority by increasing research funding.  

    The louder our voices, the more awareness we raise. Increased awareness = increased funding, which brings us closer to a world without Alzheimer's.
