Join the movement to end Alzheimer’s during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month and the Alzheimer’s Association® needs you to get involved and raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, a disease that is often misunderstood.

Did you know:

  • Alzheimer’s is fatal. It kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined.
  • Alzheimer’s is not normal aging. It’s a progressive brain disease without any cure.
  • Alzheimer’s is more than memory loss. It appears through a variety of signs and symptoms.

During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association asks you to learn more about Alzheimer’s, share your story and take action. Visit alz.org/abam to:

  • Learn and share the facts about Alzheimer’s,.
  • Get inspired by powerful stories of people sharing their experiences with the disease.
  • Go purple — the color of Alzheimer’s awareness — on Facebook, Twitter and more!
  • Honor those facing the disease by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association The Longest Day on June 21. Sign up or donate at alz.org/thelongestday.

Help the Alzheimer’s Association #ENDALZ this June! Visit alz.org/abam to get started.
