Date:4/28/2009

ociation in lieu of gifts and sign-up to be Alzheimer's Champions to learn more about getting active in the fight against Alzheimer's.

"As many as 5.3 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease and nearly 200,000 people under age 65 have younger-onset Alzheimer's disease, like the character of Ellis Grey," said Angela Geiger, chief strategy officer, Alzheimer's Association. "We applaud Grey's Anatomy producers and ABC for recognizing the need for increased awareness and funding for Alzheimer's disease, and showing how couples can plan their wedding with a philanthropic twist to benefit the Alzheimer's Association."

While the storyline remains under wraps, according to the couple's Web site, the wedding date is set for May 14, 2009. The Alzheimer's Association will be celebrating with the couple as they invite family, friends and fans to visit www.alz.org/Meredith_and_Derek and take action against Alzheimer's.
