P.S. This matching gift challenge is only available for a few more short hours. Please show your support before midnight tonight.
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. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's disease®.
If you've already made your year-end gift, thank you. If not, please give now. Even as most of us prepare for New Year's Eve celebrations, families out there are facing a cancer diagnosis. You can ensure they get the help they need in the months to come.
In the next hour, approximately 190 people will be told they have cancer. We don't have a minute to lose, Tushar.
Beyond the fact that you can double your gift today, here are four more great reasons to give:
What we're doing is working! In the last twenty years, cancer death rates are down more than 20%. That means we've helped save nearly 1.5 million lives in that time. So we can't quit now. Your gifts make it all possible. Keep it going »
Cures aren't found overnight. They're found through painstaking trials and rigorous research. Progress requires steady support, year over year. Your gift means we won't have to slow the pace of any research—let alone a breakthrough that could save lives. Find more cures »
Treatment should never be out of reach. Even when an effective treatment exists, some people can't get to it because they live far away. We provide free lodging and rides for cancer patients to get to their doctors' appointments, chemotherapy, radiation, etc. Your gift will help us erase barriers to treatment when people are fighting for their lives. Support free lodging and rides »
Prevention saves lives. We are constantly finding and sharing new ways to reduce cancer risk. Research funded in part by American Cancer Society supporters like you helped discover the link between lung cancer and smoking and, most recently, the connection between weight and breast cancer. This knowledge can save lives and stop cancer before it starts. Keep saving lives »
Please don't wait any longer. Help us reach our goal of 15,000 donors by midnight, so we can do even more in the coming year.
