Ten years ago, Marcel Brasey was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at age 54. He maintains a French-language website called Survivre avec une maladie d’Alzheimer about his experiences, thoughts and philosophies.
Last month, he traveled from his home in Geneva, Switzerland to give a talk at a La Maladie d’Alzheimer Un Defi Social (Alzheimer’s Disease: A Social Challenge), a large conference in Paris.
The conference organizers asked him to present the patient’s view, Marcel says, and with the help of his family and a memory clinic in Geneva, he delivered a talk [Download Marcel Brasey's speech]. Congratulations Marcel!
