Why:

Alzheimer's is a serious threat to our nation's healthcare system. Medicare and Medicaid spending on Alzheimer care already exceeds $110 billion. By 2015, Medicare spending on beneficiaries with Alzheimer’s will reach $189 billion and Medicaid costs will be nearly $30 billion.

Alzheimer's creates hardship for countless families as they struggle to provide the best care that they can for loved ones. This disease poses a threat to families' well-being and financial security.

Champions acting together raise the urgency of our message and generate the action necessary from our lawmakers to address this disease.
