It has been reported that retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor suffers from dementia and probably has Alzheimer’s disease. This is an insidious disease that effects 5.5 million Americans, and is the sixth cause of death in America.
It will cost the United Stated $1 trillion annually to treat by the year 2050. President Donald Trump should speak out more against Alzheimer’s and get bipartisan support to find a cure.
I myself have know quite a few people who are suffering and died from this disease. I’m going to be 70 years old next year, and worry that I could come down with this disease. I have beat cancer, but I would not be able to beat Alzheimer’s.
So please President Trump, use your voice and speak out for a cure for Alzheimer’s.
