AlzheimersAwarenessJune is officially Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and the State of Michigan is turning purple for the occasion. 

In a statement, Gov. Rick Snyder announced that he will be sharing facts, statistics, and resources for Michiganders suffering from Alzheimer’s on his social media accounts as part of a month-long campaign to raise awareness for the disease.
