Bill Gates Donates $50 Million – Alzheimer’s Research

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is donating 50-million-dollars to help fight Alzheimer’s disease.

He says the donation to the London-based Dementia Discovery Fund is personal and not through his charitable foundation, revealing that men in his family have suffered from Alzheimer’s.

Gates says the first treatments might not be feasible for a decade or more and would initially be expensive.
