According to statistics, Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. More than 5 million Americans are living with this disease. Every 66 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s and these numbers will escalate rapidly in coming years. Unless something is done, in 2050, Alzheimer’s is projected to cost more than $1 trillion (in 2016 dollars). Costs to Medicare will increase 360 percent, this dramatic rise includes a nearly five-fold increase in government spending under Medicare and Medicaid and a nearly five-fold increase in out-of pocket spending. The walk to end Alzheimer’s starts with you.
