World Alzheimers Day

World Alzheimers Day

Each Sept. 21 is World Alzheimer's Day, but every day--in fact, every 68 seconds--there are people being diagnosed with this degenerative brain disease. Already there are millions of people living with an Alzheimer's diagnosis and the numbers are expected to keep growing. There is currently no cure for Alzheimer's and so on this day, people are encouraged to raise awareness of the need for funding to research a cure.
