Blogger’s Journey in Alzheimer’s World Brings Perspective

"Last week was life-changing for Bob DeMarco, author of the Alzheimer’s Reading Room blog. It was the week that his beloved mother, Dotty – the inspiration for his blog – died".

Blogger’s Journey in Alzheimer’s World

Some people are kind. Some people are compassionate. Some people understand as a result of their own experience. Some people use words in a way that makes them jump off the page; or, write words that bring to the reader real feeling.

Shortly after Dotty went to Heaven, Judith Graham wrote a wonderful article about the Alzheimer's Reading Room and Dotty on the Association of Health Care Journalists website yesterday.

The article, Blogger’s journey in ‘Alzheimer’s World’ brings perspective to national plan, mentions my life changing event, Dotty's death on May 25, and alludes to my strong belief that Alzheimer's is "not an automatic death sentence". Dotty and I proved together that there are at least two survivors of Alzheimer's on this earth.

We are not the only One's.
