Dementia steals lives too soon…

Mom hugging graduate

The most common dementia under 60 is FTD.

FTD  — also known as frontotemporal dementia, frontotemporal degeneration and Pick’s disease — brings devastating, progressive changes to behavior, personality, language, and/or movement.  

Today, there are no disease-modifying treatments. There is no cure. But research is advancing, and we can connect you with resources and support so you don’t have to face this journey alone. AFTD is the nation’s leader in addressing FTD, and we’re here to help.
