Alzheimer’s disease is the only leading cause of death that is not preventable. In 2013, approximately 5.2 million Americans had Alzheimer’s. Most people, when they are diagnosed with cancer or have a heart attack, can seek well-documented medical treatment and are able to recover from it.

Unfortunately, right now there is no treatment or cure for Alzheimer’s. There is not enough research being done to solve this problem.

We have decided to release a special edition of Red Snapper Extra Clamps - Since Purple is the color for Alzheimer’s research, we will have a limited selection of purple clamps. Proceeds from every set sold will be going to Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. This highly rated charity is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding research with the highest probability of preventing, slowing or reversing this disease. 100% of donations go directly to support their research.

You can purchase these special items and help raise funds for research.

$18 for Six 19” clamps and $10 for Six 9” clamps

Like many of you, I can trace my love of quilting and sewing to my own mother. Sadly, in 2014 after years of decline due to Alzheimer’s, my mother passed away. Watching her lose her ability to do the things she loved was heartbreaking.

Alzheimer’s remains a common disease with no cure. Research is the only hope for the more than 3 million who get diagnosed in the US each year.

This year, remember those who struggle to remember, when you purchase our limited edition, Alzheimer’s themed purple clamps. They function the same as our classic red snappers, but come with the added knowledge that proceeds are being donated to “Cure Alzheimer’s Fund” for research. For my mother it may be too late, but your purchase may help find a cure for you, your children, grandchildren or other loved ones.

Alzheimer’s disease affects a person’s memory and other daily functions. It often affects a person’s ability to function independently. This can be dangerous to those with the disease because they can forget who they are, where they live, or where they are. It is the most common form of dementia and only gets worse as time passes.
