I have two sisters surviving cancer. A very wise survivor put my mind at ease during these trying times. She said: “Sheri, cancer is no longer a death sentence. People are cured, and heal , and move forward in life.
I am saying this about Alzheimer’s. I have been on the front lines of the excellent strides that have been made to work toward a better quality of life for both patients, families, and health care workers.
There is hope. It is not an emotional and intellectual death sentence. It is hard. It is very difficult especially when it strikes your own family. We can do this people.
Without health, where is a civilization.
Who could sum up what fear does to our society better than FDR.
“So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory.” FDR
