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.
