As the holiday season begins, the Alzheimer's Association is thankful for the National Association of Retired Federal Employees. The organization set a goal set to raise $13 million by the end of 2018 for the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Thanks to the strong commitment of NARFE and its members, that goal is within reach (see chart below — amount raised through October 31, 2018). NARFE support is instrumental to the Association's work to advance vital research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. Moreover, as the largest Alzheimer's advocacy organization in the world, the Association is grateful for NARFE in helping our work with and through the Alzheimer's Impact Movement to advocate for the Alzheimer's community at the federal and state levels. Together, we will end this disease.

The number of people living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias in the United States is projected to more than double by 2060, according to a new study published in Alzheimer's & Dementia®: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's; the authors from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that number will grow to 13.9 million by 2060, which is similar to other projections. The researchers believe Hispanic Americans and African Americans will see the largest increase. Learn more.
