"My mother recently passed away as a result of a terrible disease...
She was 84.
She'd had Alzheimer's for nearly 20 years...
and it not only robbed her of her memory...it took away
her dignity and gentle personality.
It doesn't have to be like this!
If you are having trouble remembering...talk to your doctor.
Early treatment can slow the symptoms of Alzheimer's.
So please...get checked out and help make Alzheimer's a distant memory."
