Below is a link to a story about 56-year-old Kathy Murray, mother and early-Alzheimer's patient. A salute to one brave lady!
As a mom myself, I cannot fathom how this would affect my family if it happened to me. Maybe I'm just too scared to consider the possibility, especially when I "get forgetful" sometimes and worry if I'm just overwhelmed, experiencing a "senior moment"--or worse.
In the meantime, I'll try to pursue the healthiest lifestyle I can, and pray that we make advances in research and treatment in my generation.
