alzheimers news-thanks frank

frank is frank broyles
if you are a sports fan
a football fan
a razorback fan
you know him as the iconic football coach for
the arkansas razorbacks
who won the national championship in 1964
one well known player on that team
was jerry jones the cowboys owner

Image result for frank broyles alzheimer's book
frank broyles had a lot of battles with
the university of texas darrell royal
another iconic football coach

they have something else in common
they both died from alzheimers disease

darrell royal left the
darrell k royal alzheimers fund which funds basic alzheimers
research in texas and alzheimers education

now frank
left his mark with a book
that he wrote after his wife was diagnosed with the disease
ironic that he would develop and die from the same disease

here is the book
for sale at
this link at the alzheimers association book store
here on amazon

Image result for amazon broyles book on alzheimer's
i discovered this book when my mother who lived in arkansas
was diagnosed with alzheimers disease
one of my sisters gave it to me

even as a physician i really didnt understand alzheimers disease
this book helped a lot
i was able to read it and understand what was going to happen
i was able to figure out where she was with the disease
what was going to happen next

i must say its the best book on the disease for folks who
are having to deal with it in their family

i obtained other copies and kept one in each of my three
exam rooms

i even occasionally would lend them out

i went back and read it more than once

its still a good book to have if you or your family are affected
by this disease

thanks frank
your legacy you have left like darrel k royal
is more than a sports one
