Around the world, the scientific community is
devoting substantial effort and funding to Alzheimer's disease research.
Researchers are looking for ways of preventing the disease, treatments to
improve quality of life for people living with the disease and ultimately
finding a cure to eradicate the disease.
Researchers are changing what it means to be diagnosed with dementia.
They have made great strides in the area of early diagnosis, which in turn
allows for immediate treatment that helps delay the onset of the disease.

Financial gifts directed towards research are crucial to help find
better treatments and ultimately a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and
other forms of dementia. Without proper funding, research breakthroughs go
undiscovered. Last year only one in every three approved research proposals
were funded because we simply lacked the financial means to support them.
