Our family has been dealing with this terrible disease for the past 10 years.  Finally there may be a light at the end of the tunnel for future generations.

  • "Just the last few years alone have seen some serious breakthroughs in Alzheimer's research," he says. "Ten years should be enough time for us to develop, if not a cure, certainly a much better treatment than what we have at the moment."
  • One of the exciting new treatments being tested is using sleep to treat Alzheimer's disease, and seeing if a certain level of sleep can somehow affect the symptoms or somehow slow the disease down.
