In the News

While searching the news today, this article jumped out at me - Kelly had FTD (Frontotemporal Dementia), and when he had it, there was not a lot of information about it. I find it very interesting that this article says it is now the most common form of dementia for people under the age of 60 - Kelly was diagnosed at 53 and passed away at 55:
MAJOR RESEARCH FUNDING FOR BLOOD TEST TO ACCELERATE CLINICAL TRIALS FOR NEW FRONTOTEMPORAL DEGENERATION (FTD) THERAPIES

Another celebrity joins the cause - Judy Greer witnessed her grandfather's battle:
Actress Judy Greer Advocates for Alzheimer’s Research to Honor Her Grandfather

It seems like everyday, more and more signs are being recognized:
Dementia study reveals how proteins interact to stop brain signals

I hope I reach even just one person who starts looking into the terrifying reality of Alzheimer's and other dementias from reading this - please educate yourself, volunteer, or donate!
