An Example Of Why

This message is also posted at Alzheimer's In The House.

I just read a pretty good example of why I'd like to see our elected officials pass H.R. 3286 and S.1492, the Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act of 2009. "UCLA researchers determine toxicity levels of Alzheimer's clusters in brain". The researchers mentioned are working on finding the cause of Alzheimer's. Someone develops Alzheimer's every seventy seconds, finding the cause could reduce the number of folks that are at risk of developing Alzheimer's in the future. The funding that H.R. 3286 and S.1492 will provide will help keep this much needed research going. Expensive? Yes, but I feel it will be less expensive than providing care for the millions of folks that now have Alzheimer's and the countless number that will develop Alzheimer's in the future if this research comes to an end due to a lack of funding.

Please contact your elected officials and urge them to support H.R. 3286 and S.1492.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
