This year the Mann Charitable Foundation is expanding its research efforts to include Crohn’s and colitis, liver cancer and breast cancer all of which have affected the lives of those close to the Mann’s as well as other families around the country. Donations, sponsorships, raffle events and more coupled with the Mann Charitable Foundation help to stop these terrible diseases.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, which involves memory loss and other cognitive abilities that can alter one’s life. Alzheimer’s specifically accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. As a progressive disease, Alzheimer’s symptoms worsen over time. Medications can slow the process, but there has yet to be a breakthrough in treatment for a cure.
Crohn’s and colitis are both categories of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). An estimated 1.6 million Americans are affected by IBD, a disease that tends to run through familial lines both male and female alike. Medical advances have been made to help alleviate the pain these inflammatory diseases cause, and dieting changes also help, but an actual cure to the disease is still up for discovery.
Liver disease can come in many forms and stages and is affected by many illnesses such as excessive drug usage, cirrhosis, alcoholism, hepatitis A, B, C, D and E and iron overload. The disease can cause painful symptoms that disrupt one’s natural life flow. Medication is offered to relieve symptoms, and treatments are available to extend life.
Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in women and the second main cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. Advancement in screening and treatment have improved survival rates and there are an estimated 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. There are many treatments for breast cancer including radiation, surgery, targeted drug therapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy.
