Alzheimer's disease and related dementias is a rapidly growing disease. Known as the 6th leading cause of death and the only one in the top 10 with no known, prevention, slowing, or cure, Alzheimer's disease currently affects over 5 million Americans, with a new development every 66 seconds. This disease robs individuals of basic human functionality. The Alzheimer's Association is the leading non-profit health organization dedicated to ending Alzheimer's, with the leading research campaigns, and offering a wide variety of resources to help families cope with the day to day struggles of Alzheimer's. Proceeds raised from the sale of the End Alz bands goes directly back to the Southern Colorado community and the local Alzheimer's Association, to help in its efforts to continue to provide programs and services at no charge to families!
