Alzheimer’s is currently the 6th leading cause of death in the United States

In 2017, Alzheimer’s and other dementias will cost the nation $259 billion.  By 2050 those costs could rise as high as $1.1 TRILLION

More than 5 million Americans are living with this disease, that number could rise as high as 16 million by 2050!
