Cure Alzheimer's Fund is saddened to learn of the death of Senator Arlen Specter. He was a strong supporter of funding for medical and scientific research.
His commitment to medical research and his memory will live on through the Accelerated Cures Network, which he worked tirelessly on and which will help to speed the development of therapies and hopefully cures for many diseases.
We had the honor of working with his office on funding for Alzheimer's disease research. And we look forward to carrying on this effort in his memory and the memory of so many others who have joined us in the fight to cure Alzheimer's disease.
The thoughts and prayers of Cure Alzheimer's Fund are with the family of Senator Specter at this difficult time.
