Read about UsAgainstAlzheimer’s Project 535 and give, by midnight, Oct. 17. Every little bit helps demand money from Congress to find a cure for Alzheimer’s.

Friend,

The only way to stop Alzheimer’s is to better understand it. And to get the money we need, we have to go through Congress.

Once the election is over, Congress has to do its job and pass a budget. It’s our job to make sure it includes a $100 million funding increase for the National Institutes of Health to find a cure for Alzheimer’s.

We launched Project 535 to take the grit and fire of grassroots activists on the road and fight to end Alzheimer’s in every congressional district in the country. We’ll burn up phone lines, flood inboxes and camp out in the halls of Congress, if that’s what it takes.

You and I know that this disease is too devastating not to do everything in our power to stop it.

Right now, we need $10,000 more by midnight Oct. 17, or we won’t be able to sustain our campaign and win the votes we need to end Alzheimer’s. We can’t let up, not now, not ever – not until we’ve vanquished Alzheimer’s. Please, give as much as you can.

Give now to convince Congress to fund Alzheimer's Research

Click here to give $25 or more today to help USAgainstAlzheimer’s win the votes we need for $100 million in new research funding. Your gift before Oct. 17 will be matched.

When we first started going to congressional offices, we faced resistance and ignorance of the disease. We still do.

But we tell elected officials that the only sure way to avoid Alzheimer’s is to die young. If they don’t choose that option, they’d better fund Alzheimer’s research.

Five million people and their families and caregivers are counting on us. We’re making progress, but soon isn’t fast enough.
