It’s a fact that Alzheimer’s touches the lives of millions. But many people aren’t aware of Early Onset Alzheimer’s, which afflicts people in their 30s, 40s, and 50s…when they and their loved ones are still in the prime of life – amy even have small children. This is a cruel disease, and I remember weeping my way through Barry’s book as he and I went through the editing process. I still can’t read the last page without tearing up.
If you want to learn more about Barry, his fabulous book, and the inner workings of this demon Early Onset Alzheimer’s, I recommend watching this wonderful interview that Barry gave on the morning show New Day in Seattle. It will open your eyes to this lovely man placed in a terrible position, and give you keen insight as to this terrible disease.
Go. Read. Learn. And don’t forget the Kleenex.
