  • Worldwide, 45 million people are living with dementia, and by 2050, that number will rise to 135 million.

  • In the US alone, one in three seniors will die of Alzheimer's or another dementia-related disease, and it will cost the nation $203 billion this year.

  • If you make it to the age of 85, you have a 50 percent chance of being diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and no medications have been shown to prevent or cure it.

  • How this dreaded disease has affected Michael Trainer, and what he is doing to help alleviate the suffering that Alzheimer's brings to millions.
