Six years ago I was diagnosed with dementia. Since then I have been given a correct diagnosis through the help of the Alzheimer’s Association and their commitment to funding research. I have advocated for the awareness of Alzheimer’s because there are no cures, no slowing it down, and no survivors.

Late last year, the Postal Service issued a stamp to raise public awareness of Alzheimer’s. Proceeds from the sale will help support urgently needed medical research into this incredibly debilitating disease. It will contribute to the search for effective ways to prevent and treat this heart-breaking disease.

A First-Class stamp costs 60 cents. It is known as a semi-postal stamp. This means that revenue from sales (minus standard postage and costs to the Postal Service) is transferred to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for Alzheimer’s research.
