The Alzheimer's Association, Oklahoma and Arkansas Chapter dedicates donations to providing information, support, programming and services for the thousands affected by Alzheimer's who are in the two states we serve. We also provide information on living a brain-healthy lifestyle and research into the cause, treatments, prevention and cure for Alzheimer's. The impact of Alzheimer's - both long-lasting and far-reaching - causes us to continually expand our programs, services and support to meet the new and changing needs of those we serve wherever they are in the disease process: Today, Alzheimer's affects 5.3 million Americans. By 2025, researchers say as many as 16 million Americans could have the disease.
- Every 70 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease; by mid-century someone will develop Alzheimer's disease every 33 seconds.
