Wyoming  members of the Alzheimer’s Association held an ”Alzheimer’s Action Day” rally on the steps of the state capitol building Friday morning.

Wyoming Secretary of State Max Maxfield, who served as President of the Wyoming chapter of the association, in the 1980′s., called for more funding for Alzheimer’s research. Maxfield said that while deaths from cancer, strokes and heart disease have all declined since the 1980′s, deaths from Alzheimer’s and related diseases have increased by 68 percent.

Maxfield said Alzheimer’s is ”an epidemic that is here now” and will only become more widespread as baby boomers age. He said that one in three elderly people will be victimized by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Maxfield also said he wants victims and their families to know they are not alone.
