Dancing Stars aim is to support the programs and services provided for individuals with Alzheimer's disease, as well as their families and caregivers. Presently, someone develops Alzheimer's every 68 seconds. This disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the country - and the only one that cannot be slowed, prevented or cured.
While other major diseases mortality rates have decreased, Alzheimer's has increased 68% since 2008. Alzheimer's is not slowing down, and without your support the Alzheimer's Association will cease to be able to aid those who are affected by this devastating disease.
