DEAR FRIENDS

We are proud of our many accomplishments over the past year and we are very appreciative of your support. In this report, you will meet a New Hampshire couple grappling with younger-onset Alzheimer's; a Massachusetts family that has engaged as effective advocates; a man who has set up a special trust to honor his father and support our cause; and a couple who are managing the care of an elderly parent.

We are at a critical juncture in our quest to combat Alzheimer's disease. As the first of the baby boomers meet retirement age, we are going to see the numbers of people living with Alzheimer's skyrocket. In fact, if no disease-modifying treatments are brought to market, 10 million boomers will develop Alzheimer's.

As a national organization, we have adopted a new three-year strategic plan and it has a set of very ambitious goals. While we are pleased with the impact of our work and the growth of our Association, we know there is much more to do.

Reaching the year 2050 with no meaningful treatments is really unfathomable and that is why all of us - volunteers, advocates and donors - need to step up and do more.
