Hey y’all, today I’m back with another Monthly Awareness Polish Box (M.A.P.B.) this time it’s Alzheimer’s Awareness.

FACT: “Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and the 5th leading cause of death for those aged 65 and older.”alz.org

Alzheimer’s, pronounced is ahlts-hahy-merz according to dictionary.com, is a common form of dementia, believed to be caused by changes in the brain, usually beginning in late middle age, characterized by memory lapses, confusion, emotional instability, and progressive loss of mental ability.

 FACT: “One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s disease.” alz.org

Like most diseases, Alzheimer’s has a monumental effect on the person themself, it also traumatic effects on the lives of family members and care givers. 

FACT: “In 2015, 15.9 million family and friends provided 18.1 billion hours of unpaid care to those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. That care had an estimated economic value of $221.3 billion. This is approximately 47 percent of the net value of Walmart sales in 2014 and eight times the total revenue of McDonald’s in 2014.”alz.org

Over the years the statics of this disease have continued and will continue to grow, its time we help!

FACT: “By 2025, 20 states will see at least 35 percent or greater growth in the number of people with Alzheimer’s.”alz.org

This month M.A.P.B. will donate 10% of sales to alz.org. Preorder starts today, Dec.26th and run thru Jan. 5th. Shipping will begin mid month, however, at this time international orders will not be accepted (this may change in the future).
