June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month! 

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month and the Alzheimer’s Association® needs you to get involved and raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, a disease that is often misunderstood.

Did you know:

● Alzheimer’s is fatal. It kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined.
● Alzheimer’s is not normal aging. It’s a progressive brain disease without any cure.
● Alzheimer’s is more than memory loss. It appears through a variety of signs and symptoms.

During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association asks you to learn more about Alzheimer’s, share your story and take action. Visit alz.org/abam to:

● Learn and share the facts about Alzheimer’s.
● Get inspired by powerful stories of people sharing their experiences with the disease. 
● Go purple — the color of Alzheimer’s awareness — on Facebook, Twitter and more! Wear your favorite purple all month, or get new purple gear.
● Honor those facing the disease by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association The Longest Day on June 21. Sign up or donate at alz.org/thelongestday.

Help the Alzheimer’s Association #ENDALZ this June! Stay tuned for more information about local events and activities too!
