Maria Shriver

appeared this morning on ABC's new program This Week this morning to talk about the Shriver report which I mentioned in my post below. If you missed it, here is the link -- just click on the Maria Shriver photo for the video. http://abcnews.go.com/thisweek Ms. Shriver's complete report will be released on Tuesday October 19th. The Shriver Report main emphasis is the role women play in Alzheimer's. I was privileged to be part of this report. If you care about Alzheimer's -- please get a copy of this, share with everyone you know. The more we discuss this, the better off we will be.

She makes some compelling arguments. The government needs to pass the legislation of the National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA). We are the only civilized country that does not have a plan to deal with Alzheimer's. That is sad. Urge your federal legislature to sign on to this bill.

Having dealt with Alzeheimer's in our family I understand how cruel of a disease it really is. We found an amazing resource - a free bonus book which helped guide us through what to expect. It was an enormous help to my father, brothers and I in dealing with Mum.

You are not the only country that does not have a plan. In fact, show me the country that has a plan. Show me a family with a plan. Show me any plan. This is such a difficult thing.
