The new Alzheimer’s budget was a major achievement accomplished by Democrats and Republicans working together. A Presidential Message from the White House stated,
“We come together as one country to acknowledge the challenges faced by Americans struggling with Alzheimer’s disease, while also pledging our support for the compassionate individuals who care for the men and women living with this devastating condition. As we solemnly remember the family and friends we have lost to this deadly disease, we vow never to relent in our determination to find a cure.
Together, we will continue to pursue new research in search of a breakthrough that will alleviate the suffering of the millions of Americans diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.”
