Just Two Minutes a Month—That’s All It Takes…

A letter from our Advocacy Manager: 

Often, we feel powerless to control those things in our lives that are most difficult and disruptive.  Alzheimer’s is one of those things.

Imagine if by committing just two minutes a month, you and your friends and your family and your co-workers could change the trajectory of Alzheimer’s—and realize our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.  My mom and grandmother had Alzheimer’s—and they’re worth a lot more than just two minutes a month.

You can do that—you can commit to just two minutes a month.  Join us as an Alzheimer’s advocate—it only takes a couple of minutes.  Once you do, we will send you a monthly Federal update and occasional State updates on what is happening at the federal and local level on issues impacting those living with Alzheimer’s and those who care for them.  Each of those updates has an “ask…” we ask you to e-mail or call a legislator, or write a letter to the editor, asking your legislator to make Alzheimer’s a national priority by implementing a strong National Alzheimer’s Plan, including support for policies and funding that will hasten the discovery of medical breakthroughs to treat or prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

Advocacy is not complicated or technical.  You don’t need to be “political.”  The most important ingredient is YOU.

Will you commit right now to take just two minutes a month to change the course of Alzheimer’s?  Will you:

  1. Register as an Alzheimer’s advocate HERE
  2. Take the monthly actions we request—just two minutes a month.
  3. Help us to create a Georgia Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias State Plan by sharing with us your concerns about Alzheimer’s HERE
  4. When you receive the next Federal or State Update, and each subsequent update, take the action requested.
  5. Ask our federal candidates how they will work to implement the National Alzheimer’s Plan.
  6. Ask our state candidates to support the creation of a Georgia Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Plan.

Imagine if we all took just two minutes a month what an impact that would make!

Sincerely,

Kathy Simpson
