National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, 
                2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, we 
                renew our resolve in the fight against this devastating 
                disease, and we take time to remember the loved ones 
                taken from us by Alzheimer's. We also recognize the 
                patients and family members who are affected by it, and 
                we extend our gratitude to the caretakers and 
                researchers who are pursuing better treatments and a 
                cure.

                Age is the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer's 
                disease, so the need for prevention, improved 
                treatments, and a cure becomes increasingly urgent as 
                more Americans grow older. My Administration is 
                pursuing the tremendous possibilities that science 
                offers to improve the lives of the millions suffering 
                from this disease. We continue to support Alzheimer's 
                disease research through the National Institutes of 
                Health and the Department of Veterans Affairs. New 
                progress is being made as more is learned about this 
                disease.

                America is blessed by our seniors, and they have earned 
                our greatest respect. Citizens living with Alzheimer's 
                disease deserve the best possible care. National 
                Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month is an opportunity 
                for Americans to offer our support to Alzheimer's 
                patients and those who sacrifice to help them live with 
                dignity and comfort. The strength and compassion of 
                these individuals reflect the good heart of the 
                American people.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim November 2006 as National 
                Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. I call upon the 
                people of the United States to observe this month with 
                appropriate programs and activities.
