The following letter was sent to Patch and others on Tuesday by former Parch blogger and Democratic Commiteeman Matthew Silverstein, who is running for City Council.
Today is a historic day in our nation!
For the 1st time in our nation's history we have a national plan to fight Alzheimers Disease. The Obama administration has set a date to prevent and treat Alzheimers by the year 2025.
This plan is very exciting, but we need to keep fighting to ensure that is funded by Congress. Below is a link to form which will email your member of Congress telling them to fund the National Alzheimers Plan. It has been a little over a year now since I lost my Grandmother to this terrible disease. I want to wake up one day to a world where nobody will ever have to face this disease again. If we work together I know we can make this dream come true.
It would mean so much to my family and I if you could take a few minutes and fill out this form. Remember that together we can make a difference.
Democratic State Committeeman, 26th AD
