More Money for Alzheimer's Research

More help is on the way for the millions of Americans suffering with Alzheimer's disease.

The Obama administration is pumping an additional $50-million into Alzheimer's research.

The money will be used to develop better dementia treatments and to help caregivers who are overwhelmed cope better.

About five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's disease and barring a medical breakthrough that number is expected to double in the coming decades.
