Your Donations are Welcome

The WAI hopes that knowledge gained through its research will contribute to viewing Alzheimer's disease similar to heart disease; that is, a disease developing over a lifetime that can be identified at pre-clinical stages and potentially prevented. The success of these research studies will play a major role in determining the impact that Alzheimer's disease will have on our children's future.


Whether the promise is prevention, treatment or a cure, it will only be possible with the involvement and support of people who care about making the senior years of life a time of preserving and sharing memories, not losing them. Gifts such as yours, regardless of size, will help us understand and solve the mystery of Alzheimer's disease.

Dear Dr. Sager,


I first became aware of your research efforts through an article in the Rock County Alzheimer's Support Center newsletter. I subsequently became a participant in the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer's Prevention. I am grateful to be given the opportunity to do my small part in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.


My father was afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. He was a teacher and administrator for 37 years before retiring. Not one to sit quietly, he spent the next 16 years running his own small business accounting firm until Alzheimer's began taking a toll on his memory and forced him to stop. He died in September 2003.


In my father's memory, my mother, husband and I are making a donation to be used for Alzheimer's research. It is our hope your research will prevent our children and grandchildren from suffering the consequences of this disease.
