"What if I see you, and I don't know that
  you're my daughter, and I don't know that
  you love me?"

"Then, I'll tell you that I do, and you'll
  believe me.”

WELCOME

We need your help.

  • Over 44 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease – this number will rise to 75.6 million by 2030 and 135.5 million by 2050.
  • Around the world a new case of dementia occurs every 4 seconds.
  • Approx 750 000 people in South Africa have the disease.
  • Presently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Alzheimer’s disease threatens to bankrupt families, with escalating medication costs and no support to pay for either day or full time care.

We would like to make a difference so please help us by sending us your stories, joining our organisation, making a donation or signing our petition.
