alzheimers news-you make the difference


Alzheimer's Texas

yes you
will make the difference
as to whether we find a cure for alzheimers

we may be within 5 years of having a treatment
if we are lucky
a cure for alzheimers disease

how so

its your and my donations over the years at the alzheimers walks
that have helped fund
-influencing congress to give us more money for research
-more research locally and nationally
-caregiver education and support which is so important

i am about to enter a new study that is partially funded from the national
alzheimers group from your and my and others donations

you and i and others make a difference
when there is a donation made to these organizations

i will soon know if i probably have alzheimers disease
thanks to a study called the ideas study
which will allow medicare pay for the amyvid pet scan
which highlights the bad beta amyloid in the brain
the hallmark of alzheimers disease
partially funded by your and my and others donations

all over the us and specifically in central texas
family members caregivers those at risk medical personal
go to classes to learn about alzheimers disease and other dementias
funded completely by your and my and others donations

research on alzheimers disease at the local state level
is partially funded by your and my and others donations

i guess
what i am trying to say here
is that we cant fight this disease
without the publics support
the government cant and wont do it all for us

we need your help
help us
support your local walks

now here in central texas i have chosen to support the
alzheimers texas walks
since all the funding stays in state
-to support the local chapter in all it does
-to support local research
