Dear Friends,
 
We have launched the Friends of Alzheimer's Campaign to generate greater awareness of this dreadful disease. I would like to take this opportunity to make a personal appeal to your kind generosity to remember these less fortunate people and their family members who are burdened by the misfortune.
 
You may be aware that currently there is no cure, there is no prevention but we know that there is extensive on-going research especially after the late Ronald Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease some years back. Today, a great deal has been done in the field of research in practically every aspect including the possibility of prevention.
 
At the same time we would like to stress the increasingly alarming rate of Alzheimer's Disease in Malaysia and worldwide that we expect in the future - due primarily to the changing demographic picture in our longer lifespan and hence an aging population. Can you imagine the fact that, if we live to 85 years of age, currently the chances of getting Alzheimer's Disease is 1 in 4, and above 90 the chances will increase to 1 in 2!
 
We appeal to you to take a major step towards helping us Alzheimer's Disease Foundation Malaysia to fulfill our dreams and the dreams of people with Alzheimer's and their care-givers.
 
We really look forward to welcoming you into our family - Friends of Alzheimer's! And hope that your stay with us is meaningful, fulfilling and worthwhile.
 
We assure you that your donation and contributions will be put to good use. Thank you for having the heart and sharing the caring. God bless!
 
 
Yours Sincerely,
 
 
Ong Eng Joo
Chairman,
Alzheimer's Disease Foundation Malaysia
