I am Italian and went through a nightmare that is now becoming a nightmare to so many families with young children at home. And this nightmare will certainly bankrupt them.
My husband came down with Alzheimer's at 48 years old. He was sick for 7 years (but he showed signs of this for at least 10 years prior ) and died at 54 years old in 2004. This April, it will be ten years since he's passed.
