Salt Lake City, UT – (Globe Newswire – January 9, 2017) – Alzamend Neuro™, Inc. (Alzamend™ or the “Company”) announced today Willie Aames will serve as its International Spokesperson while joining the team as Creative Advisor. The Company stated that with its recent launch of its Regulation A+ Tier II Offering online at www.AlzamendRegA.com™, it looks forward to the many contributions, inspiration and leadership that Aames will provide. With the Company’s campaign targeted to raise $50MM in new equity capital in less than a full year and able to take investment immediately,
the addition of Aames is strategic and notable. On December 8, 2016, the Company was notified by the SEC that it had qualified its Form 1-A Application allowing the Company to move forward with the Offering which will leverage the key component of the Reg. A+ Tier II rules which allow for the solicitation of the general public as well as traditional investors
and financial institutions.
Although Willie Aames has starred in over 22 network series, Aames is best known worldwide for playing the iconic “Tommy Bradford” on the 1970s television series Eight Is Enough and Scott Baio’s heartwarming wingman “Buddy Lembeck”t; on the 1980s television hit series “Charles in Charge.” Aames also went on to star in 6 feature films. During the 1990’s and through 2008 Aames developed his marketing skills making a name for himself as an award winning, platinum selling writer, producer and director. During this time, Aames successfully developed strategies, scripts and marketing plans for a myriad of companies including Fortune 500 titans Sprint, Northwest Airlines, Marion Labs and
Helzberg Diamonds, a Berkshire Hathaway company. Aames also served as executive vice president of Pamplin Communications where he successfully developed several children shows that became “sell through product” for Sony Wonder, Walmart and Toys R Us distribution channels.
During the mid-2000’s, Aames endured a series of personal setbacks including a personal bankruptcy that left him homeless but became known and revered for his perseverance and resilience. Determined to overcome and learn from his experiences, Aames again made headlines when he became a licensed financial advisor appearing on NBC’s “Today”
show. “What I experienced I wouldn’t wish on anyone” the actor stated, “But once I survived it, I was determined to make a difference in the lives of others.” In talking of the extreme circumstances, he explained: “Those years changed my entire perspective about everything, my world perspective, and my life, its meaning and what my contributions should be.” His
success and triumph was celebrated and documented on Oprah Winfrey’s popular hit, “Where are they Now.”
Aames’ family has a long history with Alzheimer’s. His paternal grandfather was Dr. Albert Upton, PhD, an acclaimed professor, author and the Dean of the English department and the Head of Russian Literature for Whittier College in Southern California. Dr. Upton pioneered the concept that the IQ of a college freshman could be raised by teaching a course in semantics. The course and the accompanying book were titled “Design for Thinking” which is still in use at Whittier College. Aames spent his early adulthood watching this brilliant educator, who literally “wrote the book on thinking”, slowly succumb to Alzheimer’s.
Aames’ grandmother Alleen, who was brilliant in her own right as a biochemist, also passed away due to Alzheimer’s. Armed with his personal experiences in losing two significant family members to AD, Aames has noted his personal quest to effect change and progress while making a difference in others’ lives. Aames expressed an unyielding commitment to
use all of his talents for the development and success of Alzamend Neuro™ and to raise awareness of AD. “I believe that any step forward in the fight against Alzheimer’s is a good step, and I can think of no endeavor more worthy to undertake than to help take positive steps towards ending what has been called ‘the most feared disease’.”
