(WTXF) - Every 66 SECONDS, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease. It’s the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.
Got your attention? It sure got ours! That’s why the FOX 29 family supports the Alzheimer's Association “Walk to End Alzheimer's” events. Join us and unite in a movement to reclaim the future for more than FIVE MILLION Americans living with Alzheimer’s. Walk to End Alzheimer's is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease!
The Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter serves Southeastern Pennsylvania, South Jersey and Delaware. It is the local chapter of the National Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association, an alliance of family members and professionals dedicated to helping people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families through education, advocacy, and support.
For more information, call the Association hotline at 800.272.3900.
