SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another Dementia.

My family, like so many of yours, has been deeply impacted by it. If it seems like it's more common--that's because it is.

It kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.

What can we do? We can raise money. And we can drink beer. (It will make more sense in the video player above).

ABC7's Reggie Aqui spoke with Ryan Nosek, Ghost Town Brewing co-founder, and Brittany Enos-Harrit, senior special events manager of the Alzheimer's Association for more on this great cause.
