Seth Rogen Alzheimer’s Charity
Rogen has been outspoken about awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. No one in his biological family has it but it runs on his wife’s side, and has affected her mother for several years. “I think until you see it firsthand, it’s kind of hard to conceive of how brutal it is,” Rogen said to CNN. “Until I saw it, you just don’t get kind of how heartbreaking it can be.”
During the interview, he talked about how he tries to be emotionally supportive and around as much as he can for Miller’s mother. Rogen testified about the disease and his charity before the United States Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services on February 26, 2014.
He started the Hilarity for Charity movement, to inspire change and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease among the Millennial Generation. On February 25, 2016, Rogen and Miller were honored with the unite2gether accolade from unite4:humanity for their work promoting awareness and raising money for Alzheimer’s research through Hilarity for Charity.
