A bit about my mom. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2009. We could see changes in her as early as 2006, but I guess we all just thought nothing was wrong and Alzheimer’s never enter our minds till about 2008 when things really started to get out of hand with her. She started calling me telling me the same story day after day, sometimes 3 of 4 times in one day. Then she started saying someone was taking things out of her house. I kept telling her no one was taking anything out. I had told my step dad to go to the Doctors with her and talk to them about what was going on.

"My husband Jeff is 58 and was diagnosed with Young Onset Alzheimer's Disease at 55. His disease has progressed very rapidly. He is now in the advanced stage. My husband was in the Bapinuzemab clinical trial. You can imagine our extreme sadness when we got the phone call saying the study had been cancelled. I literally wasn't able to even swallow I was so crushed. It was almost as bad as the day we got the diagnosis.

My beautiful wife of 54 years started with Alzheimer's disease 7 years ago and now is unable to do anything for herself and must be cared for 24/7. Sad thing is we have 8 beautiful grandchildren and she is unable to know them or her 4 children and will ask me where her husband is. We, all of the country, must understand this disease and help in any way they can, with contributions, or just help your neighbors.
