Alzheimer & Dementia Suffers NOW IS YOUR TIME TO SPEAK OUT!!!!!


The following is an email I received, we who suffer are being finally a real chance to speak out, i have submitttted the form, this could very well put a face and a real voice to this disease. I ask you to join me.



My name is Ashmi, and I’m on the Facebook Marketing team. I love your blog. 
 
For Alzheimer’s Awareness month in September, we are partnering with the 
Alzheimer’s Association to help raise awareness. 
 
We're collecting stories on the theme of how people with Alzheimer's use 
Facebook to find strength and cope- through knowing that treasured memories, 
photos, and conversations are preserved on Facebook. We're trying to raise 
awareness about how people who are suffering can learn about coping with 
Alzheimer's in the modern day - perhaps through Facebook as a place to revisit 
and secure those memories and identities. 
 
If you are interested in sharing your story with us on this topic, please let me 
know. We’d love to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s. I created an online form 
where you can tell your story: http://www.jotform.com/form/11850317172. 
 
Please let me know, 
Ashmi 


God Bless & Keep You & This Country of Ours!!

Dear Joe, this is the first time I visit your blog, and I'm impressed .... Fortunately I do not suffer from AD. I am a caregiver to my father with AD.

Jo,
I wanted to share this article about recent research that found a gene that is linked to both Alzheimer's disease and type 2 diabetes, which could prompt new treatment options.
http://www.dailyrx.com/news-article/scientists-discover-function-gene-associated-alzheimers-and-diabetes-14584.html
Researcehrs said the discovery has provided new ideas about treatment options for both Alzheimer's and type 2 diabetes, including the targeting of insulin receptors within a cell.
Both my Grandparents were afflicted so I wonder if it is in the cards for me as well.
