Canadians do something AMAZING for Alzheimer’s during World Alzheimer’s Month
My mother had Alzheimer’s disease and I saw firsthand its impact on my family. That’s why I believe research into the cause and cure is critical. With over 47 million people in the world living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, this is a problem that touches everyone.
This year, the Alzheimer Society encouraged Canadians to do something AMAZING for Alzheimer’s research during September, the global World Alzheimer’s Month™ campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma. I stepped up as well and promised to match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000 to support groundbreaking Alzheimer’s and dementia research in Canada.
Thank to individuals like you who did something AMAZING for Alzheimer’s this month, we raised OVER $50,000 towards Alzheimer’s and dementia research!
Were you one of the supporters who gave? If so, thank you! But even though we have reached our goal, if you haven’t yet given, please consider donating and encourage your friends and family. There’s still so much work to be done.
The Alzheimer Society Research Program (ASRP) funds research projects that are helping find the cause, a treatment and hopefully a cure. Meet some of the great ASRP researchers like Eva, Barry and Alex.
But because of the efforts of people like you worldwide, we are getting closer to a solution.
