Climb Mt Everest, Cure Alzheimer's

Hey Alan, if you see this, give us a shout out from Mt Everest....

I had intended to call Alan Arnette before he left for the climb of Mt Everest. As is often the case I didn't get to it. I say those words late every night -- I didn't get to it.

Right now, Alan is on his way to Kathmandu. Wozo.

Alan has a vision, raise awareness and raise $1 million for the cure for Alzheimer's disease. All the money goes right into the Cure Alzheimer's Fund. Direct. Alan will not receive one cent of these funds.

It gets better. 100 percent of any donation goes into Alzheimer's research. You might be wondering how that can happen?

The founders of the Cure Alzheimer's Fund pay all the fund's overhead -- right out of their own pockets. That is how you spell -- Commitment. They know Alzheimer's.

I know money is always tight. However, if you have a couple of bucks to donate, click this big red button.

While you are at it. Ask you friends and co-worker to hit the button.

Remember what Dr Oz said about Alzheimer's disease,

In the future, either you'll get it, or you'll know someone that has it.

The future is right now.

Go here for the latest information on the Everest Climb.
