Currently, more than 4 million Americans now suffer from the dreadful disease (DHP: "Half of us in this room already have a time bomb ticking in our brains, counting down the days until we get Alzheimer's disease... We have to give the scientists the resources to defuse it before it detonates and destroys our minds"). The "Frasier" co-star, who told of watching his own grandfather die from the debilitating disease, is the national honorary chairman for the Alzheimer's Association. He said his grandfather's death from Alzheimer's was devasting, both emotionally and physically, for his mother and aunts as well as himself, "I was trying to think of a way to explain to you how awful that was... when I had the terrible realization that Alzheimer's is becoming so widespead the chances are that you know someone struggling with this disease."
