Alan Arnette is getting ready to climb to the summit of Mount Everest as I write this. He is on the mountain, in a tent, right below the summit. Wow.

Alan's goal is to raise $1 million for Alzheimer's Research and for Alzheimer's caregivers.

I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes as I write. Alan posted an audio cast from his tent just below the summit of Everest. In this audio cast he talks briefly about his mother who suffered and succumbed to Alzheimer's disease.

If you would like to listen to the audio cast go here. You will be moved.

100 percent of your donation goes directly to Alzheimer's research. 100 percent.

Every dollar given to Cure Alzheimer's Fund is immediately used for research with the best chance of leading to new therapies and, one day soon, a cure. Cure Alzheimer's Fund has no endowment, and all our overhead and expenses are paid for by the organization's founders. So, when you donate to Cure Alzheimer's Fund, you know exactly where your money is going—to fund researchers who are working toward a cure.
