"Participating in the trial is my opportunity to help eradicate this horrible disease for my children and possibly the world." Individuals with a family history of Alzheimer's may help unlock clues to the disease. Learn how you can help advance Alzheimer's and dementia research at alz.org/TrialMatch.
Researchers are hoping to learn what causes Alzheimer’s and what treatments might be effective by studying people whose families have a history of the disease.

Last week Sigma Kappa presented us with a $1 million check for the Alzheimer's Association Women's Initiative at their national conference in Chicago - a goal they reached three years early. To celebrate, sisters from all over the country stood proud in purple while forming a human Alzheimer's Association logo. We are so grateful for Sigma Kappa's commitment to the fight against Alzheimer's disease! #ENDALZ #SKBeBold #SKSharedHearts

Debra: We are, I am now convinced... a huge network of kinfolk. Equal opportunity, too. My neighbor, a dear Hispanic gal and widow is now looking after her elder-beloved who, in addition to ongoing Alz dementia, has just lost 90% of her vision from a related stroke. Another colleague is from India, and they are home caring their dad. Though our cultures and ethnicities may be varied, our love for our family member is universal, and across the board we face each challenge, in our faith. Also, I hope making time for a bit of laughter. All, stay strong.
