Proposed Federal Budgets to Kill Alzheimer’s Research Momentum
Please take action and pass this on to a friend.
Alzheimer’s research will suffer significant setbacks if the appropriations bills making their way through Congress become law. Call your Senators and Representative today and tell them that you are disappointed that the President and Congress have halted the momentum toward ending the Alzheimer’s epidemic.
The Senate and House Labor-HHS subcommittees appropriations bills for Alzheimer’s research funding provide only minimal increases in Alzheimer’s research funding. At a time when research is at the threshold of a solution, the federal government is turning its back on future generations that will suffer from this disease and on a health care system that will crumble unless we divert the coming epidemic.
Failing to invest adequately in Alzheimer’s research jeopardizes over 20 years of progress. Science is on the verge of discovering effective treatment and even ways to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Without a research breakthrough or the development of new treatments in the next few years, up to 14 million baby boomers will be condemned to the death sentence of Alzheimer’s disease.
Call your local district office for your Members of Congress today. Tell them that only by committing more funding and conducting more research will we be able to ease the emotional, physical, and financial devastation families suffer as a result of Alzheimer’s.
