Mission: Our vision is that one day, we’ll live in a world where dementia does not exist. Research is already providing hope to people affected by once-incurable diseases, like HIV/AIDS and cancer.
The diseases that cause dementia are no different –they are physical diseases that can be overcome. We know it won’t happen overnight. But with the backing of our passionate supporters, scientists and staff, we are working tirelessly until that day comes.
