How Early Onset Alzheimer’s Can Affect The Best Of Us

Before the age of 49, Jim lived a life advocating for the mentally handicapped, physically challenged, and the disadvantaged. His passion for these people and these causes never faltered, until Jim was diagnosed with early-onset-Alzheimer’s at the age of 49.

This debilitating disease has unfortunately taken over Jim’s passion and even the simplest of tasks have become more and more difficult for Jim to perform. Let’s keep patient’s like Jim and caregivers like his wife in our thoughts as we push to find a cure to this growing disease. This no longer is a disease for the older generation but is a disease that can affect anyone. Help raise awareness and support brain research!
