Dementia is a devastating disease for the person afflicted, their loved ones and caregivers, and society at large. Watching someone you love impacted by memory loss is heartbreaking.
Dementia is the 8th leading cause of death in Canada. In 2020, there were over 650,000 people living with dementia. By 2031, this number will exceed 1 million, but it doesn't have to.
Canadians for Leading Edge Alzheimer Research (CLEAR) funds leading-edge research that contributes to our collective understanding of dementia—with the ultimate goal of ending it, for good.
Future generations in Canada are now at a higher risk of being affected by dementia, though we can slow down this trend by funding scientific research into the cause, prevention, and one day a cure.
It is because of research that we have been able to discover the role of genetic factors behind this disease and also know what lifestyle choices people can make to prevent a diagnosis. We need to continue to fund science to propel advancements forward.
CLEAR is 100% committed to end dementia. For Good.
Join us today to help prevent dementia for current and future generations, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
