Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted: Nov. 24, 2009

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

 

It is during this special time of year that we think about our blessings and are reminded that the lives that touch ours are our greatest asset. After all, Thanksgiving is about spending time with the ones we care about most and giving thanks for the health and happiness of our loved ones.

 

Unfortunately, not everyone is privileged to count health as one of their blessings this holiday season. In fact, every 70 seconds another American is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s -- that is 5.4 million Americans and 35 million people worldwide inflicted with this devastating disease.

 

With 78 million Baby Boomers quickly approaching the age of greatest risk for Alzheimer’s, we must find a cure fast – and that’s exactly what we are working on.

 

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is the only organization with a roadmap to the cure. We are addressing the Alzheimer’s crisis head-on, conducting research aimed at finding the major causes of the disease and helping accelerate the developments of effective therapies and ultimately find a cure.

 

Everyday we make significant strides, bringing us that much closer to a cure, but we need your help.

 

Right now we are launching a last minute holiday fundraising drive -- $30,000 in 30 days to cure Alzheimer’s. Please consider donating to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund this holiday season and making a contribution to our fight against Alzheimer’s.

 

On behalf of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, I want to wish you a happy Thanksgiving! May you spend this special day with your family and friends and enjoy the company of those that matter most.

 

Best wishes,

 

Tim Armour

President and CEO, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund
