Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month
Show your support and help end the Alzheimer’s epidemic
June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month — an opportunity for your organization to join the Alzheimer’s Association® in a conversation about the brain, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, the only leading cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed.
Worldwide, there are an estimated 47 million people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and without a change, these numbers are expected to grow to 76 million by 2030. But everyone can help to end this epidemic
— especially you. During Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, the Alzheimer’s Association asks people around the world to go purple and use their brains to fight this devastating disease.
Take the lead
Alzheimer’s is a fatal disease that kills nerve cells and tissue in the brain, affecting an individual’s ability to remember, think and plan. Ultimately, those with the disease will lose their ability to communicate, recognize family and friends, and care for themselves.
By partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, your company can be a leader in the fight against Alzheimer’s, a disease that devastates families across the world while costing our global community billions of dollars. In the United States alone, more than 5 million individuals are living with the disease and over 15 million are acting as caregivers.
