Last week, the Alzheimer's Association released their new "Facts and Figures" regarding Alzheimer's. It is an interesting read and re-defines what Alzheimer's means to women -- here is an article from USA Today that gives a good recap of what was in the report --http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/03/19/alzheimers-disease-caregiving/6566179/
For the whole report, you can log onto www.alz.org.
If a few short weeks I'll be heading to Washington DC for the Annual Advocacy Forum -- talking with Senators and Representatives and their staff -- hoping to not only increase awareness for Alzheimer's but increase funding for a cure for this disease. The numbers in the report are staggering and we have to fight harder than ever to get the help we need.
