Summary
Every sixty-nine seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. The DeMoe family faces early onset Alzheimer's, an inherited genetic mutation that causes the disease in 100 percent of cases, and has a 50 percent chance of being passed onto the next generation. Rather than give up, the DeMoes have agreed to spend their precious, abbreviated years as part of a worldwide study that could utterly change the landscape of Alzheimer's research and offers the brightest hope for future treatments, and possibly a cure. Kapsambelis tells the story of the family's terrible circumstances-- and their bravery
Summary
Describes how a family who shares a gene for early onset Alzheimer’s became a part of a worldwide study that can hopefully shed light on future treatments for the devastating disease along with accounts of the doctors leading these groundbreaking studies
