When the Breakthrough Act was introduced in 2007, it took 19 months to gain 92 cosponsors and the bill was never brought to a vote.

The Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act (S.1492/H.R.3286) was reintroduced in July. Over the last five months, efforts by Alzheimer advocates have helped bring 101 cosponsors to support this bill.

Although we still have a long way to go in the process of the Breakthrough Act becoming law, we need to keep up the momentum to add more cosponsors to this bipartisan bill.

Check out the list of current cosponsors here. If your members of Congress are not on the listed, ask them to sign on today!
