I lost my mother a year ago to Alzheimers. It was awful to see what happened to a beautiful and vibrant woman. Diagnosing, treating and preventing this horrible disease is so important.

A recent survey showing that American adults fear getting Alzheimer's almost as much as they do getting cancer did not surprise me. I feel like I could fight cancer - I don't feel like my mom had a chance.

Thanks for posting Dr. Piscatella. I'm calling my doctor right now - I'm overdue for blood work!
