About Alzheimer's

If you have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or a related dementia, you are not alone. In addition to funding research initiatives in Texas, The DKR Research Fund wants to share information with those facing this challenge and, most importantly, let you know that you're not alone. We are in this game to win - for all Texans.

For Caregivers

Caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease impacts every aspect of daily life. Balancing this enormous task with your other responsibilities and health can seem overwhelming. We hope that the DKR Research Fund will soon be thought of as a valuable resource for those caregivers that face this challenge head-on.

Alzheimer's in Texas

Texas is uniquely situated to contribute on a national scale in the fight against AD. Organizations such as the Texas Alzheimer's Research and Care Consortium (TARCC) are making breakthroughs every day. The DKR Research Fund will act as a nexus for AD research in Texas, as well as be an invaluable educational resource to patients, caregivers, physicians and the public.
