Seth Rogan Speaks

Comedian Seth Rogan has become an Alzheimer's advocate since meeting his wife Lauren Miller.  Lauren's mother has early on-set Alzheimer's.  In 2011, Seth and Lauren went public with their Alzheimer's story and began their advocacy work.



To help fund Alzheimer's research, they founded the Hilarity for Charity organization which uses comedy to raise funds.  By April of 2013, they had already raised over $400,000.

Earlier this week, Seth spoke to the Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies advocating for more funding for Alzheimer's research.


He is funny, compassionate and totally on point.  He spoke for about 6 minutes and brought his experience with his mother-in-law to the discussion.

It is a shame that only two Senators remained for the speech.
