UNDATED - Members of the Alzheimer's Association are hoping the attention the disease is getting from a Hollywood movie will lead to more funding. The movie "Still Alice" starring Julianne Moore opened in select theaters over the weekend.

Katrice Sisson says the effort to find a cure is being severely underfunded.

Sisson says the number of cases will steadily increase between now and the year 2050.

Sisson says they have a rally day at the State Capitol this Wednesday, where they'll be lobbying state lawmakers to increase funding.
