Living with younger onset Alzheimer’s disease can be a lonely and isolating experience. Although there are many resources available for those coping with Alzheimer’s, very little is available for those specifically facing younger onset (diagnosed under the age of 65). This lack of information and support leaves families feeling misunderstood and often disregarded.

Our mission is to change that.

Without Warning is launching an initiative to produce an informative documentary that we hope will begin a national conversation on younger onset Alzheimer’s and help those journeying with this illness to know that they are not alone. This special program will share real life experiences and offer practical advice from those diagnosed with the disease, their spouses, their children and care partners. Together, with TMK Productions*, an Emmy award winning production company, we are raising funds to create this inspirational program that we know will make ‘a positive difference’ in the lives of people across the country.

The cost to produce this documentary, and a companion website, is $80,000 - meaning that this project will only be possible with the combined support of caring individuals like you.

Please help us by making a gift to the Younger Onset Alzheimer’s Documentary Project at Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center (RADC). The RADC is one of 27 Alzheimer’s disease research centers across the country designated and funded by the National Institute on Aging the gold standard for Alzheimer’s disease research.
