Because of your generosity, we're moving closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease. You're helping us advance methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. You're also helping provide critical care and support services to those facing the disease. 



Since Thanksgiving can be a challenging time for people living with the disease and their caregivers, you may be interested to know that you can access our support services and other resources around the clock, including:



You're just as committed to ending this disease as we are, and for that, I can't thank you enough. From all of us here at the Alzheimer's Association, we wish you a happy holiday season. 



Gratefully yours,
