Last March when I was in Washington at the Political Action Summit, one of the things we were asking our legislators to do was to sign on to a bill called the Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act as well as the National Alzheimer's Project Act. These bills basically asked congress to make Alzheimer's a priority and to ask for $2 billion for research. This week, A bicycle ride is taking place where riders are riding from California to Washington DC to raise awareness for the Alzheimer's Breakthough Act.
I'm asking that you please go to this link and sign the on-line petition to support this legislation. it doesn't cost you anything but a few minutes of your time. We are hoping for 50,000 signatures and so far we are at 22,000 -- we need your help and it only takes a minute -- to make a big difference.
