Christine Francis Baum VanRyzin Alzheimer's Averted:  A Path to Survival

Authors Message:

By writing ALZHEIMER'S AVERTED: A PATH TO SURVIVAL I  wanted to share a message of hope.  But I also hope that I have planted a seed of involvement.  These neurological diseases are so complex.  It takes seeing the whole picture as we each are holding the different parts.  With earlier probable diagnosis more of us are still able to communicate.  If each one shares the ideas that are working, perhaps the whole picture will come together and our children and grandchildren, brothers and sisters, will not have to face these diseases.  As simple as "I feel better when..." There is so much to be researched.  There are so many more avenues to pursue.  We can open our minds to healing.  It is not a time for waiting, hoping they find the cure.  It is a time for patient-empowering intervention  It is a time when patients partner with their doctors and researchers, and actively learn, seek and research.  We who physically, mentally, and spiritually feel the effects of disease can have the strongest voices...for those who longer can.  Perhaps by sharing, it will help keep one more family intact...
