Growing Closer to a Cure for Alzheimer's

How you can help

There are two major enemies of further Alzheimer’s research right now, both a lack. Researchers need more funding and more participants. Even small donations from the community add up, and can help the scientists accomplish their objectives.

Unfortunately, although so many people have or will get Alzheimer’s, its funding lags behind other research such as for breast cancer.

Perhaps even more important is to become a participant in the study so that the researchers have someone to research in the first place.

If you are interested in volunteering and helping make the world a better place for everyone with Alzheimer’s or who has a parent or family member with the disease, then please visit the Alzheimer’s Association website and use their TrialMatch service. It is free, and you may help save lives.

Not only people with Alzheimer’s or dementia are needed for these trials. People at risk, caregivers, and even people with no known health concerns are required as well.
