Alzheimer's is a cruel & tough disease due to the impact on the person, the family & caregivers. It wears you down, slowly takes away a loved one, steals your future & wipes out any financial security you may have in savings. A cure/prevention must be found or the impact to the American people will be devastating both emotionally & financially.
My mom has Alzheimer's. My aunt has Alzheimer's. An uncle died from Alzheimer's. Highly likely my grandmother had an undiagnosed dementia.
