Obama and McCain Must ReThink IT

ReThink IT is a video with a message that is important to all Americans and a message that is especially important to our next President. We hope this "IT" video will be forwarded to millions of people around the world who don't even know they are losing their minds.

106 Million people worldwide by 2050 are expected to "Lose IT" and develop Alzheimer's, Dementia and Brain Disorders. Don't think it won't be you or someone you love — it can strike at any time and at any age.

The video was made by a Mom who loves her two children, Addi and Cassi, who are dying of "Childhood Alzheimer's."
