You think that blondes have more fun? Well brunettes get more funds! They get it because their cause improves lives. Whether you are cheering for the brunettes or the blondes help me to tackle Alzheimer's, a devastating and mysterious disease. My research indicates that to date there is no treatment available to prevent, or cure Alzheimer's. However, with proper funds we can work together to find a cure.

There are currently 5.5 million people diagnosed with Alzheimer's in the U.S. and by 2050 this number is expected to double. The annual cost of this disease last year alone was 172 billion dollars. This is undoubtedly more then it cost to bring two teams to the super-bowl.

In addition, aside from the overwhelming financial impact, the emotional drain on families is catastrophic. The care of patients is in the hands of their family. For some the disease has been described as watching their loved one die a millions deaths, with their personality and demeanor changing to a point of non-recognition. They become strangers. Our success will honor and pay tribute to husbands, wives, and children who give an enormous amount of emotionally taxing hours and days to take care of the Alzheimer’s patient. A patient that often does not know who their caregivers really are.

Every contribution no matter how large or small will help the brunettes make that touch down--- a cure for Alzheimer’s. Lets go team!!!
