There is a lot we can do.one hundred years ago there was no cure for the black death and many other diseases that we know and understand now.we can love our loved ones that have the disease and we can unite as caregivers and push our nation to research and discover new medicines anf better therapies.I too am a daugthter of a mom battling azheimers disease.I've started my own petiton.you can access it by going on the alzheimers solutions and click on the link.turn your grief into action-no action,no reaction.its a basic law of physics.I don't focus on the lack of a cure.I focus on the lack of effort to find a cure.thankyou carla danesi glorias daughter

Purple is the official color of the Alzheimer's Associations. Green is the color of the Alzheimer's Disease/Dementia ribbon. It really bothers be that these two get confused.
