According Triumph Over Alzheimer’s Founder Leslie Ann Crozier,
“Recently, with the help of our caretakers we were able to get my 90-year old mother and her wheelchair to Santa’s workshop, and have her join me on Santa’s lap for a photograph. Mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s five years ago by Dr. Roger Rosenberg. While it was a lighthearted moment, that experience reinforced my commitment to eradicating this terrible epidemic through Triumph Over Alzheimer’s.
“Some startling facts that demonstrate the why we should all be concerned:
- Last year, someone died every 66 seconds with Alzheimer’s
- One in every three senior citizens died with some form of dementia or Alzheimer’s
- Alzheimer’s is the with leading cause of the death in the United States
“My wish for 2019 is that everyone step up their game in supporting Dr. Roger Rosenberg and all our favorite friends and researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Rudy Tanzi and his team at Harvard, and Massachusetts General, Dr. Dale Bredesen, author of ‘The End of Alzheimer’s’ … and all the doctors and researchers who are tirelessly working to find a breakthrough in the Alzheimer arena.
