Alzheimer's Disease. November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month and it's a
good time to reflect on the impact that Alzheimer's Disease (dementia) has had
on your family history. An estimated 5 million people in the U.S. are living
with Alzheimer's Disease. A new case is diagnosed every 72 seconds. Undoubtedly
someone you know will or has some form of this debilitating dementia.
Alzheimer's robs people of their memories and all that they could have passed on
in the way of family history. What does that mean to you? If you are fortunate
enough to have not been effected by Alzheimer's Disease in your family, perhaps
you will share the impact of another serious medical condition that has impacted
your family. How have you gone about researching your family's medical history?
The deadline for submissions is November 15th.
