A practical, helpful guide on how to fight back against Alzheimer’s disease—with expert medical advice & one woman’s inspiring personal journey.
Jamie Tyrone was forty-nine years old when she learned she had a 91% chance of getting Alzheimer's disease—by accident through genetic testing. She was shocked, but after an initial bout with depression she decided to take action rather than concede defeat.
Jamie teamed up with Dr. Marwan Sabbagh, a renowned neurologist, and together they created a resource detailing not just Jamie's experience, but expert medical advice for anyone facing the disease.
This book is a practical, helpful guide for those who know they’re at greater risk of contracting Alzheimer’s disease. Readers will:
Gain expert medical advice from Dr. Sabbagh on how to fight back against the disease
Discover the pros, cons and possible dangers of genetic testing
Witness a first-hand account of how to deal with the shadow of Alzheimer’s disease through Jamie’s story
If Alzheimer’s has affected your life, or the life of someone you know, this book is for you. You’ll be armed with information, and ready to tackle Alzheimer’s head-on.
