I have fantastic news: Our anonymous donor from Northern California was so inspired by the response to their recent matching gift challenge that they've pledged an additional $100,000 to the Alzheimer's Association if we can raise that same amount by June 30.
Their additional gift will support an early-career researcher grant that has the potential to slow the trajectory of Alzheimer's disease — a critical need since Alzheimer's is currently the only cause of death among the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. The Association provides leadership and funding to advance research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's.
Any amount you give, up to a total of $100,000, can be matched to advance care, support and research, so please DONATE NOW.
Your gift 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. You know how urgent this work is. Will you please make a generous donation that can be matched today?
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.

Long-distance Alzheimer's caregiving can be challenging
Many families are geographically spread apart and aren't always able to provide hands-on care for a person living with Alzheimer's or another dementia. While living at a distance can complicate caregiving, we have resources to help.
People living with Alzheimer's may have problems sleeping
Many people living with Alzheimer's disease experience changes in their sleep patterns. Scientists don't completely understand why this happens, but anyone experiencing sleep disturbances should have a thorough medical exam to identify what may be contributing to the problem.
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.
