Dear Tushar, Next Monday, Giving Week begins — a special giving opportunity this spring that celebrates the powerful and lasting impact YOU make through your support of the Alzheimer's Association. Next week, you can look forward to stories, updates and information about all the ways your generosity helps advance Alzheimer's disease care, support and research. You'll learn about our latest report, 2018 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures, which shows the impact Alzheimer's has on individuals, families and the nation's healthcare system. You'll meet another supporter who shares your commitment to ending Alzheimer's. And you'll be inspired to hear about the ways your generosity is touching so many lives — and providing us all with hope for a better future. You'll also have opportunities to show your support. Your Giving Week donation will support our mission to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. So why not make your most generous gift today? We've set a goal of $25,000 and need your help to achieve it by Friday, April 27. You can help make our first-ever Giving Week a success and show your support for the work we do by making your gift now. Thank you,
Your donation will strengthen our efforts to advance Alzheimer's care, support and research. From face-to-face support to online education programs and promising global research initiatives, your gift makes a difference in the lives of all those affected by Alzheimer's and other dementias in your community and across the world. Thank you for your continued support.

You may be able to influence some Alzheimer's disease risk factors
Scientists have identified factors that increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease. The most important risk factors — age, family history and heredity — can't be changed, but emerging evidence suggests there may be other factors we can influence.
Alzheimer's may have an effect on your relationships
Your abilities may change over time with Alzheimer's, but how you continue to be a partner in your relationships can impact your ability to live well with the disease. Establishing and maintaining meaningful relationships throughout your Alzheimer's experience can enhance your ability to stay physically and emotionally healthy.
The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
