Heal a woman’s brain now. Heal her family for generations to come.

Women + Alzheimer’s Disease

Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis. That’s why we must be at the heart of the solution.”

Who + Why
women and alzheimers

Did you know women are twice at risk than men for Alzheimer’s?

That’s why I’m on a mission to educate 1 million women about what they can do NOW to end Alzheimers for themself and for family generations to come.

Alzheimer’s and related dementias are a WOMEN’S Health + Socioeconomic issue that has Generational Impact across demographics, especially our BIPOC communities.

I’m convinced we are the women now who WILL end the Generational impact of Alzheimer’s within our families because we are the ones most impacted … first as caregivers, then with our own brain health and resulting consequences.

Know the Numbers
  • An estimated 6 million Americans today live with Alzheimer’s, a disease that robs memories before taking lives.
  • Alzheimer’s begins to develop in the brain 20-30 years before diagnosis.
  • 2/3 of those diagnosed are women—and no one knows why.
  • 2/3 of Alzheimer’s caregivers are also women
Know the Facts
healthy habits

Alzheimer’s disease is NOT a natural part of aging.

If Alzheimer’s runs in your family that does not necessarily mean you will get it.

Conversely, if it does not run in your family, you are still at risk.

Healthy habits can prevent or slow the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. This includes diet, exercise and lifestyle changes.

Know the Economics

Alzheimer’s is the nation’s most expensive disease.

The cost of Alzheimer’s and other dementias to the United States’ economy is a staggering $355 billion, in health care, long-term care and hospice.

Alzheimer’s is currently on track to bankrupt Medicaid.

The expected cost of Alzheimer’s is projected to reach $1.1 trillion by 2050.

Costs for care far exceed other terminal illnesses such as cancer and heart disease. The average total cost of care for a person with dementia over the last five years of their life is $287,038.
