My grandmother passed from Alzheimer’s. My dad is beginning to show signs of it. His first cousin has it, severely. My mother’s first cousin has it, severely.
Patients of Alzheimer’s waste away very similarly to patients of chemo. I know; I have witnessed both in my family.
The more educated we become, the more we can help those who have it and prevent others, including ourselves, from developing it. It is becoming more and more prevalent and we need to know why and stop it! I am in the sandwich generation, now, caring for my aging parents. This not how I thought my life would be. If this continues, who will take care of me? I don’t want that! I want to stop this disease. I will not be a victim!
