Alzheimer’s: it’ll never happen to me

Posted on

World Alzheimer’s Month (You Should Watch This Video).

The above public service announcement shines a spotlight on a disease that will affect you one way or another:

  • My father died of Alzheimer's 10/13/2007. I'm on the left - it could happen to me.
    My father died of Alzheimer’s 10/13/2007. I’m on the left – it could happen to me; my brother is on the right, it could happen to him.

    You may receive an Alzheimer’s diagnosis or I may receive an Alzheimer’s diagnosis

  • A loved one of yours may receive an Alzheimer’s diagnosis and you’ll be his or her caregiver
  • A good friend of yours; a neighbor; a coworker may receive an Alzheimer’s diagnosis

The point is – just as all of us know someone who has had, or currently has, cancer – all of us have some sort of connection to someone who has Alzheimer’s or other dementia.

None of us is immune to this disease that steals a person while their heart is still beating.
