Bill Gates Donates $100 Million To Fight Alzheimer's Disease

November 13, 2017
Bill Gates who is the founder of Microsoft will be donating $100 million to find a cure for Alzheimer's Disease.   He will be donating $50 million to the Dementia Discovery Fund... which partners industry and government to develop treatments and then another $50 million to startup companies working in the Alzheimer's research space. Bill said in an essay ...      “It’s a huge problem, a growing problem, and the scale of the tragedy--even for the people who stay alive--is very high.    I know how awful it is to watch people you love struggle as the disease robs them of their mental capacity...It feels a lot like you’re experiencing a gradual death of the person that you knew.” We have Alzheimer's in our family and it is just heartbreaking.   - Darlene Evans
