Two of my friends are featured in recent articles about Alzheimer's. An article in the Appleton, Wisconsin Post-Crescent tells the story of the dementia that runs in Chris VanRyzin's family, and how a combination of prescription medicines, supplements and lifestyle changes have gradually improved her health. Chris is the founder of forMemory, a non-profit working to share information to prevent and treat early onset Alzheimer's and related disease.
Jim Cook's work to help identify people under age 65 with memory loss in the Lincoln, Nebraska area is profiled in the Kearney, Nebraska Hub article. Jim was diagnosed with probable Alzheimer's when he was 55.
