The End of Alzheimer's starts with YOU. The numbers are rising - today an estimated 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's Disease and someone develops it every 68 seconds. Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the US, but it is the only one without a cure. Take action on September 21st for those suffering from this disease to let them know they are not alone, and they do not have to suffer in silence. Wear Purple. Send emails asking people to register for a Walk to End Alzheimer's near them (www.alz.org/walk). Ask people to simply donate, or simply make a donation yourself. Most of all - spread the word and raise awareness. Even if we hit the 1,000 mark of pledges, keep pledging. Pledge today to take ACTION for ALZHEIMER'S.
