Alzheimer's disease is an especially cruel disease, because it robs people of their memories.
An organization in Newton is hoping to raise awareness about it. Central Mississippi residential center in Newton hosted a rally Tuesday morning.
Organizers say it's important for all generations that a cure be found.
"Awareness of any type of disease obviously moves things to some kind of a cure and some kind of action, to make sure that there are services provided. So our hopes were to do exactly that. To raise awareness, to get people involved and at the same time celebrate the lives of people that are suffering with Alzheimer's."
CMRC presented commendations to some of its caregivers Tuesday. November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month.
