Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, where as many as 5.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, including an estimated 200,000 who are younger than 65. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and the only one of the top 10 causes of death that has no cure and cannot be prevented or even slowed.
