The death of Senator Charles Percy means that our nation has lost to Alzheimer’s a leading statesman and a devoted family man. We have also lost another citizen to this deadly disease -- one for which cruelly there is no treatment or cure.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Senator Percy’s family, who helped care for him in his struggle against Alzheimer’s. As we remember the Senator , we recall his steadfast leadership and dedication to doing the right thing, setting aside partisanship for the better good. USAgainstAlzheimer’s believes there could be no finer tribute to Senator Percy than a renewed, bipartisan effort to end Alzheimer’s as we know it in the next decade.
