Currently, over 5 million people are living with Alzheimer's. Our owner's grandfather lost his battle with the illness last year. Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States claiming 1 in 3 seniors' lives. Last year alone, 15 million caregivers provided an estimated 18.1 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $221.3 billion. In 2016, Alzheimer's will cost the nation $236 billion and will rise to $1 trillion in 2050.
