Alzheimer’s should be a national priority
Editor, Record Express,
On April 9, more than 800 people living with Alzheimer’s, caregivers and advocates from across the nation will gather in WashingtonD.C. for the 26th annual Alzheimer’s Association Advocacy Forum.
Representing millions of people impacted by Alzheimer’s across the country, they will engage in the democratic process and appeal to members of Congress for action on Alzheimer’s disease.
I, being an Ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Association, will be there. I lost my job three years ago as a nurse due to being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s &tstr; and I’m only 54 years old.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. In her 60s, a woman’s estimated lifetime risk for developing Alzheimer’s is 1 in 6. Deaths from Alzheimer’s increased 68 percent between 2000 and 2010, while deaths from other major diseases decreased. Alzheimer’s disease is the only cause of death among the top 10 in American that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed.
Please call Congressman Pitts at 717-393-0667 and ask him to make Alzheimer’s a national priority in 2014.
