Lives cut short by disability or disease

People overwhelmed by disease lose time to cradle a newborn, walk arm-in-arm down the aisle, dance at birthday celebrations, or hold a diploma aloft.

This year, nearly one in four people in the U.S. are expected to die from cancer. Heart disease is the number one killer globally for people of nearly every ethnic group.  Every 66 seconds, someone in the United States is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
