What better way to pay your respect to your loved one than to give a life-affirming gift in their memory to research into the cause of Alzheimer’s disease?

Paul Coopersmith has been running Coopersmith's One-of-a-Kind Tours in the UK, Western Europe, Japan and New Zealand since 1984. His tours are targeted towards travelers who don't consider themselves the typical "tour types" - they consist of small groups and cover limited geographical areas in order to spend ample time in each location, focusing on gardens, stately homes and fine arts.
My name is Terry Lee. My mother and grandmother both died of Alzheimer's Disease and I witnessed what a horrible fate this can be for a person, their family and friends. Today, 5.3 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. By 2050, up to 16 million will have the disease. Payments for care in 2012 were estimated to be $200 billion. Without a cure, these figures will nearly triple by the year 2050.
