Nail Lacquer, Wine, Puzzles, Bracelets all among products available to support research into Alzheimer’s disease
This holiday season, you have the opportunity to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. The holidays can be particularly tough for Alzheimer’s patients and their families. But with every passing day, scientists and researchers are discovering more about the disease, bringing us closer to developing effective treatments for it and strategies to prevent it.
Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is a non-profit dedicated to providing grants for the most promising research to prevent, slow or reverse Alzheimer’s disease. Since its founding in 2004, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has contributed over $60 million to research, and its funded initiatives have been responsible for several key breakthroughs – including the groundbreaking “Alzheimer’s in a Dish.” With 100 percent of donations going directly to research, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has been able to support some of the best scientific minds in the field of Alzheimer’s research from around the world.
This holiday season the organization has teamed up with a cosmetic company, a puzzle manufacturer, a vineyard, and more to give you the opportunity to help as the search for a cure continues
The gifts you can buy this holiday season, which will help support research into Alzheimer’s disease, include:
