My brain matters.

At three pounds, your brain weighs less than your purse, yet it is your body's most powerful organ. It controls thinking, breathing and movement. It gives you your sense of passion. Your sense of humor. Your sense of purpose.

And like your purse, you take your brain with you wherever you go. You'd never leave it behind.And like your purse, you take your brain with you wherever you go. You'd never leave it behind.

But Alzheimer's disease is forcing too many of us to leave our brains behind. In the United States alone, nearly 13 million women are either living with or caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease. This devastating disease places an unbalanced burden on women at work and at home, forcing them to make unwanted choices about their careers, relationships and other life decisions. Learn More.

This movement to celebrate women's brains is influenced and inspired by The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Takes on Alzheimer's. It calls on 1 million women to use their amazing brains to help wipe out Alzheimer's disease. We need the power of each woman's brain to help solve this problem — and to take action in the fight.
