Whether it be a vaccination, a pill, anything. Families are losing family members because of this, and the government is only giving $600 million while they are giving $3-$5.3 billion dollars a year to cancer. I am not trying to rule out any type of disease or anything, but come on government, Alzheimer’s is just as important as cancer. I hope people will stop taking Alzheimer 's for granted, and not paying any mind to other families that are losing family members. I hope scientists will find a cure for both cancer and Alzheimer 's and they will reach their goal!

Alzheimer 's is a brain disorder that affects more than 5.3 million people in the United States. The elderly are mainly affected by loss of memory. Scientists have not yet found a cure for this disease which is destroying minds. The government has been helping with a plan giving $600 million a year. Their goal is to prevent or treat the disease by 2025.
2224 Charles St. Hughson, CA 95326 5 November 2015 501 I Street, Suite 7-600 Sacramento, CA 95814 Dear Senator Boxer: My name is Priscilla Fernandez and I am currently a junior at Hughson High School. I am writing this letter in regards to the proposal of a new bill about using taxpayer money in order to find research on all forms of cloning. I firmly believe that both of these types of cloning would be beneficial to society. My uncle was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer and is said to have less than a year to live. Although this type of cancer is usually caused by the horrible habit of smoking and other limiting factors.
Today there is still no cure for Alzheimer 's disease. Clinical trials: a scientifically controlled study of the safety and effectiveness of a therapeutic agent (as a drug or vaccine) using consenting human subjects. Trial Match helps the Alzheimer 's Association with matching patients and their loved ones with medical experts exploring possible Alzheimer 's and dementia treatments. Participating in clinical trails helps move research forward, without clinical trials there could be no prevention, and no cure. According to the Alzheimer 's Association website there are more then one hundred and thirty activity enrolled Alzheimer 's clinical trials with more then fifty thousand volunteers.
209 [114th] I am writing you to ask that you help pass the new bill. The cruel disease Cystic Fibrosis (a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe) effects about 30,000 people living with Cystic Fibrosis (70,000 worldwide), approximately 1,000 new cases of Cystic Fibrosis are diagnosed each year. In the past two years I have met
Registered Nurses and the Neonatal Specialty On August 7, 1963, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, was born 5 ½ weeks premature [37 weeks]. He weighed 4 pounds 10 ½ ounces, but succumbed 39 hours after birth to “hyaline membrane disease, now known as respiratory distress syndrome [RDS]” (James 1). Today, this baby would have lived. However, in 1963 “about 25,000 children a year died because medical science lacked the skills and the specialized equipment needed to save them” (James 1). “By 2002, fewer than 1,000 babies a year die[d] of respiratory distress” (Philip 807) and “doctors can now save preemies as young as 23 and 24 weeks with the use of the protein surfactant, ventilators, and advanced technology known as continuous positive air pressure” (James 3).
The unemployment rate among our veterans is 6.9 percent compared to the national average of 7.3 percent according to Covert in the article, The Four Economic Challenges Veterans Face. This means that our veterans are clearly having a hard time getting employed after they retired. The military only gives veterans two years of unemployment after they release them back to the civilian life. President Barack Obama signed the "VOW to Hire Heroes Act" in into law in 2011 telling companies that they would receive tax credit if they were to hire a veteran who’s been unemployed for four weeks, and that he was also willing to give even a higher tax break to those companies if that would to hire a veteran who’s been unemployed for six months. As Compton mentioned, ‘This is just one of the initiatives the President has enacted in order to ensure that the country fulfills its obligation to our service members and their families (Compton, 2011).’ Having a job in society is essential for the veterans to set them up to a successful
The average waiting time for a lung transplant, however, is two years. Many times the person waiting for a new lung develops further complications and/or they die before getting the long. The survival rate of lung transplant is about 50% (How Is Cystic Fibrosis Treated?, n.d.). The most recent article that I found on CF from PubMed was published in February of 2016 and titled “Design of Novel Aminoglycoside Derivatives with Enhanced Suppression of Diseases-Causing Nonsense Mutations.” Although the article was not solely about CF, it discussed how different nonsense DNA-constructs underling the genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis. I choose this disorder because a child whom I oversaw in my clinical rounds had this disease and I wanted to know more about it and how it would affect his quality of
This disease lasts a lifetime and usually gets worse with time. According to thoracic.org, “Cystic fibrosis affects at least 30,000 people in the United States; between 900 and 1,000 new cases are diagnosed every year. One in 29 people of Caucasian ancestry is an unaffected carrier of the CF gene mutation.” Although Cystic fibrosis is more commonly found in white people, there is no scientific evidence or answer on why so many Caucasian people have this disease. According to Ms. Judy Monroe, “…tissue in the pancreas becomes scarred and damaged. Healthy tissue also is replaced by cysts, or small holes filled with fluids.” CF affects the transport of salt and water across cells.
He is planning to spend six trillion dollars less than what we are currently spending every single year. Right now, the U.S is spending about ten thousand dollars per person which adds up to three trillion dollars per year. In other words, he is planning to get the country out of debt with the money we aren’t using for the Medicare. When you propose all these things, it sounds phenomenal to have more Medicare coverage for less, but analysts say it’s too good to be true. According to media and Kenneth Thorpe, an Emory Universal Health-Care expert who worked in the Bill Clinton, “finds that Mrs. Sanders’ proposal would actually harm many working beneficiaries of Medicaid, the state- federal health care plan for the poor and the near poor”.
