Alzheimer’s & Dementia killed and is killing my mom and dad.¬† I live with it everyday as their daughter and caregiver.¬† I’m watching my dad trying very hard to stop the disease from taking, and my mom is letting it take her over.

As many as¬†5.3 million Americans are living¬†with Alzheimer‚Äôs disease.¬†Alzheimer’s¬†destroys brain cells, causing¬†memory loss¬†and problems with¬†thinking and behavior severe enough to affect¬†work, daily living,¬†social life, and of course, your family. ¬†Alzheimer‚Äôs gets worse over time, and it is fatal.
