alzheimers news-leaving alzheimers behind

Image result for organicgreendoctor
thats going to be my new motto
leaving alzheimers behind

this last weekend as i was helping set up for the fundraiser for the central california alzheimers association called blondes vs brunettes a flag football game between female competitors donating their time to raise money for the alzheimers association
they usually raise close to $50,000
someone asked me as we somehow got on to discussing my diagnosis and the research studies i have been in
they said
you know i would never know you had a problem

i said
there are a lot of us out there now that are being diagnosed
we are becoming the new face of alzheimers disease

there is a website called being patient that does articles and pod casts on a regular basis on alzheimers disease
i am on their news feeds and usually read and listen to all of them

this one today
leaving alzheimers behind...
thats my new motto

click on the video below done by being patient and listen to how this patient
one like me whom you would not probably suspect he has an issue

after watching this video i might just get out that rusty ole bike in my garage
tune it up
put on my helmet
leave alzheimers behind like he does
