What’s Aileen Been Up To?

San Clemente Business owner, Aileen Brazeau attends the annual Alzheimer's fundraiserI recently attended  the Alzheimer’s OC gala event at the Balboa Bay Resort. Alzheimer’s research is something I have always believed in.

San Clemente Villas has an entire wing dedicated to Seniors who are afflicted with dementia or Alzheimer’s. My staff and I witness first hand what Alzheimer does to a person, and to entire families as well. It’s a disease that robs people of their ability to function and relate to the world.

I think I speak for many people when I say it is my fervent hope that a cure is found very soon for this disease. The figures on how many people are probably going to be coping with Alzheimer’s or dementia, over the next few years are astronomical, and the financial toll on our health care systems is going to be monumental.

I have been attending fund-raisers for our local Alzheimer organizations for years now, and I will continue to support the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association until a cure is found.

I was surprised and delighted  to see in the news lately that Bill Gates has donated $100 million towards research to find a cause, or at the very least and effective treatment for Alzheimer’s. He is looking not only towards the known research but is funding the Dementia Discoveries fund.  He is also setting up ways for scientists to share information with each other.

I hope that contributions from all of the different support organizations for both of these diseases help scientists to find a cure and keep people’s brains healthy for a good long time.
