Goal: 25,000 Progress: 4,579
Sponsored by: Alzheimer's Association

Alzheimer's disease is a national epidemic. The soaring global costs of Alzheimer's and dementia care, the escalating number of people living with the disease, and the challenges encountered by affected families demand a meaningful, aggressive and ambitious effort to solve this crisis. The urgency is clear. Alzheimer's can't wait.

In order to change the trajectory of this devastating disease, we must take bold steps now towards providing better support for the millions of Americans navigating Alzheimer's and finding the needed treatments, prevention and, one day, a cure. Urge congress to pass the $400 million increase in funding for Alzheimer’s research so we can work toward our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.

Tell congress that you are counting on them to throw their full support behind making Alzheimer's a top priority on Capitol Hill.

Congress must act now on Alzheimer's!

Dear [Decision Maker],

As an Alzheimer's Association advocate, I am writing to request that you make Alzheimer's disease a national priority by supporting at least an additional $400 million for Alzheimer's research activities.

The soaring global costs of Alzheimer's and dementia care, the escalating number of people living with the disease, and the challenges encountered by affected families demand a meaningful, aggressive and ambitious effort to solve this crisis.

America cannot continue down its current path — it is up to you to change the trajectory of Alzheimer's disease. Today, the 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer's cost our nation an estimated $236 billion, including $160 billion to Medicare and Medicaid. If we fail to make a difference right now in the fight against Alzheimer's, up to 16 million people will have the disease in 2050, costing more than $1 trillion in 2050.

The urgency is clear. Alzheimer's can't wait.

This enormous and unsustainable strain on the healthcare system, families, and federal and state budgets is avoidable with federal leadership. We must ensure that the U.S. National Alzheimer's Plan has the resources needed to change the trajectory of Alzheimer's disease. The Plan outlines critical steps our nation must take to address the full spectrum of the Alzheimer's crisis. Please support at least an additional $400 million for Alzheimer's research activities.

In order to change the trajectory of this devastating disease, we must take bold steps now towards providing better supports for the millions of Americans navigating Alzheimer's and finding the needed treatments, prevention and, one day, a cure.

Sincerely,

Petition Signatures
