Women are at the epicenter of Alzheimer’s…

  • Two-thirds of those affected by Alzheimer’s are women
    • That’s 3.8 million women, including over 113,000 that live in LA County
  • A woman in her 60’s is twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s than breast cancer
  • Women overwhelmingly provide the caregiving to their family members, whether their loved one is a man or a woman
    • More than one-third of those caregivers are made up of sisters, daughters, and even granddaughters
  • Alzheimer’s is now the 3rd leading cause of death for older women in Los Angeles

The numbers are clear, Alzheimer’s is a women’s issue!
