It wears you down, slowly takes away a loved one, steals your future & wipes out any financial security you may have in savings. A cure/prevention must be found or the impact to the American people will be devastating both emotionally & financially.

My sister and I are 10 years apart so we were not close until I became and adult actually when i turned 21. Growing up she always took care of me and looked out for me since I was her baby sister. About 9 years ago she was faced with a difficult situation in her life and was under alot of stress, shortly after that the signs started to appear but when I think back to other situations the signs were there but I just shrugged them off. She was diagnosed with dementia about 6 years ago.
