Founded in the late ‘90s by Nevada businessman Larry Ruvo in honor of his father who succumbed to Alzheimer’s, Keep Memory Alive (KMA) has been quietly raising awareness and over $60 million in funds in its quest for enhanced treatments and ultimately the prevention of memory disorders of all kinds, including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and Parkinson’s.
Consider these alarming facts about Alzheimer’s disease alone:
In 2009, an estimated 5.3 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease.
In 2009, every 70 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease. By mid-century, someone will develop Alzheimer’s every 33 seconds.
By 2050, as many as 16 million Americans could have Alzheimer’s disease. Caring for those individuals may cost upwards of $500 billion annually and will likely bankrupt Medicare and Medicaid.
The average cost for the illness from diagnosis to death is $174,000 per patient, making Alzheimer’s the third most expensive disease in the U.S.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. It was founded in 1967 by Irwin M. and Suzanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D. Janowitz, M.D.
Since our founding over four decades ago, CCFA has remained at the forefront of research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Today, we fund cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finance underdeveloped areas of research. In addition, our educational workshops and programs, along with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field. We are very proud that the National Institutes of Health has commended us for "uniting the research community and strengthening IBD research."
There are three main types of lung cancer. Knowing which type you have is important because it affects your treatment options and your outlook (prognosis). If you aren’t sure which type of lung cancer you have, ask your doctor so you can get the right information.
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
This is the most common type of lung cancer. About 85% of lung cancers are non-small cell lung cancers. Squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and large cell carcinoma are all subtypes of non-small cell lung cancer.
Small Cell Lung Cancer
Small cell lung cancer is also called oat cell cancer. About 10%-15% of lung cancers are small cell lung cancers. This type of lung cancer tends to spread quickly.
Lung Carcinoid Tumor
Fewer than 5% of lung cancers are lung carcinoid tumors. They are also sometimes called lung neuroendocrine tumors. Most of these tumors grow slowly and rarely spread.
