I lost my Dad to Alzheimer's Disease and, therefore, research toward a cure from this devastating disease is important, not only to my family and me, but to others who have been affected by Alzheimer's. We want to be sure that our hard-earned donated dollars are maximized when it comes to finding a cure. It is my opinion that American Health Assistance could do a better job when it comes to keeping their fundraising and administrative expenses in check. I realize that the organization must incur these expenses, but they are too high at AHA. I'll write my next check when I see program support increase.

Having worked in the geriatric field for over twenty years, I have become acutely aware of the devastation Alzheimer's disease, macular degeneration and glaucoma have on the elderly and their families. Being part of a Board whose mission is to fund research to cure these debilitating diseases is very rewarding. It is energizing to imagine a world without memory and vision problems. I believe by volunteering on the Board and financially supporting AHAF, I am actively doing something to make a difference for future generations.

The people I worked with (as a freelance) at AHAF were extremely committed to serving their constituencies by providing the most accurate, up-to-date information they could on their target diseases. They also fund research that is too new and innovative to attract funding from more conservative organizations. (They've funded at least two scientists who went on to win Nobels, both of whom serve on their board.) There have been breakthroughs due to their funding you can read about on their site.

According to Charity Navigator this organization rates only a two star rating, up just recently from one star. I only donate to charities which rate at least 3 stars from Charity Navigator. If more of us checked up on the charities we support, we might encourage them to meet the highest standards of moneys spent on program and not on administration, fund-raising, etc. Check the salaries of CEOs too. Many are over-compensated.

I have a loved one who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and it is comforting to know that I can either call the American Health Assistance Foundation, or receive information in the mail or by e-mail concerning the most recent summaries of cutting-edge research. It gives me hope to know that the science is moving forward and that someday soon there will be better treatments, preventive strategies or perhaps even a cure. The staff of this organization is truly dedicated, caring and compassionate.
