Yesterday my husband and I went to hear a woman called Amanda Wootton speak. She is 27 years old and tested positive at the age of 19 for the gene for Familial Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease. This means she will definitely develop the disease. No question, no doubts. Her mother was diagnosed at the age of 35 and died at the age of 47. Her mother's four siblings all inherited the gene and all died before the age of 49. As she spoke, Amanda radiated happiness, positiveness and an enormous love of life. She will be graduating from college in three weeks as a Personal Services Worker, which is the official title here for caregivers in a nursing home. She will be caring for Alzheimer's patients. My eyes kept filling up and they are now. After her speech, we spoke to her. She kept hugging me. She is beautiful inside and out and I recommend that people visit her website www.alzheimersvoice.com to learn more about her.
