And once I got started, it was easy."

Women at risk for Alzheimer's disease may face critical window
News about women & Alzheimer's disease
Women genetically predisposed for Alzheimer's face a 10-year window when they have a greater chance of developing the disease than men with similar genetic risks, new research suggests. According to the study, "genetically vulnerable" white men and white women aged 55 to 85 have similar odds for developing Alzheimer's except from 65 to 75 years old, when the risk appears to jump for women.

The Judy Fund had some serious fun at the ΣAM Convention
The Judy Fund attends Sigma Alpha Mu's Annual Convention
The Judy Fund was honored to travel to Naples, Florida to join Sigma Alpha Mu at their 2017 Annual Convention. We enjoyed seeing so many Sigma Alpha Mu friends, including these USC gentlemen who stopped by The Judy Fund photo booth to show their support. The convention was an opportunity for The Judy Fund to thank all Sammy Brothers for their wonderful support in our fight to end Alzheimer's and present awards to this year's top fundraising champions.
Congratulations to all of our 2016-2017 fundraising champions!
