Alan Arnette On Alzheimer's


Alzheimer's devastated my parents life savings, it caused a rift in our family, it destroys individuals, it's a huge problem and deserves a huge attention" ~ Alan Arnette

Alzheimer's Reading Room

Alan Arnette On Alzheimer's
Alan Arnette recently completed the 7 Summits Climb for Alzheimer's: Memories are Everything to raise $1M for research and increase Alzheimer's awareness. Alan devotes his mountain climbing efforts to the deeply forgetful and Alzheimer's caregivers.

Alan partnered with the Cure Alzheimer's Fund, Alzheimer's Association and the National Family Caregivers Association plus, International Mountain Guides. The Alzheimer's Immunotherapy Program (AIP) of Janssen Alzheimer Immunotherapy and Pfizer Inc. funded the campaign.

It is not easy clawing your way up the icy side of a mountain. You can watch Alan doing just that in the video below. He also has a message for all of us.
