Welcome to Alzheimer’s Research Foundation
Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and currently affects over 5 million Americans. Discovered over 100 years ago by Doctor Alois Alzheimer, it is a progressive neurological disease that causes memory loss, confusion, and a decline in functionality. While the majority of people with Alzheimer’s are age 65 and older, up to 5 percent of people with Alzheimer’s are in their 40’s and 50’s. Alzheimer’s can be a devastating disease both for the people who suffer from it, and for friends and family members who have to deal with the fact that their loved one no longer remembers them. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s…but thanks to organizations like Alzheimer’s Research Foundation, we’re getting closer.
Unlike other Alzheimer’s organizations that promote education and caregiver support, Alzheimer’s Research Foundation is a 501(c)3 that is dedicated to finding a cure for a disease that affects so many lives in so many different ways.
In the past, the majority of money spent on Alzheimer’s research went to fund pharmaceutical research that treated symptoms of the disease. While treating the symptoms and slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s are noble deeds, we here at Alzheimer’s Research Foundation work with motivated researchers whose progress can be measured in quantifiable terms because we truly believe that a cure is possible.
WILL YOU HELP US FIND A CURE?
Helping people with an urgent need often causes an organization’s funding that would otherwise go directly to research to be used for programs that help people who are in crisis right now, pushing a cure off further into the future. That is not the case with Alzheimer’s Research Foundation 501(c)3. We will not lose focus on finding the cure. We are the research people and our goal is simple, “we fund measurable projects that are focused on identifying a cure for Alzheimer’s disease”.
We would like to remind you that there are other organizations with similar names but we are the one and only Alzheimer’s Research Foundation 501(c)3, 100% focused on funding research for the cure of Alzheimer’s.
