What is the correct pronunciation of the word "Alzheimer's" that is a mental disease? I have heard two to three pronunciations of it.

    Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60%to70% of cases of dementia.It is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and gets worse over time.The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events(short term memory loss)
