Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative disease that destroys nerve cells (neurons) in the brain. As these neurons are destroyed, it results in memory loss and other problems with thinking and behavior. The disease gets worse over time, and is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.

Some of the symptoms often associated with early stages of Alzheimer’s disease:

  • Forgetfulness Symptoms of early Alzheimer’s can include forgetting dates, events or names, misplacing or losing things, repeating stories, or repeatedly asking the same question.
  • Trouble managing finances You may notice a decline in ability to keep track of bills or manage a checkbook.
  • Difficulty tracking days of the week, the day’s date, the year, the time of day or seasons of the year
  • Trouble completing routine activities such as driving to a familiar location, cooking a favorite recipe, and remembering where items are stored or located.

We cannot discover the cure to this devastating disease without your help. The research discovery gained through clinical trials is the hope for finding more effective treatments. Join us in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
