it’s a diagnosis – alzheimer’s

The diagnosis is alzheimer’s disease. She can’t hold back the tears. She is 64 years old.

Will she ask herself these questions?

Who do I tell? How long will I live? What will become of my family? What will happen to me? What about my job? Who will take care of me? Will their be any pain? Will most of my friends slowly stop communication with me? Will it cause turmoil in my family? Will it ruin us financially? Don’t they have a cure yet? Will my family have to clean and bathe me?

Will I lose all of my memories?

Every 66 seconds, someone in America is diagnosed with alzheimer’s disease. Approximately 67% of those folks are women.

We need a cure for alzheimer’s disease!
