Hello. My name is Ed. My wife's name is Mindy. In early October of 2011, at age 60, I was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease. This blog was created to share this journey my wife and I are about to embark upon with others who may be interested in understanding what it feels like for both the person taking the trip and the person who is along for the ride. We realize we are not the first couple to take this trip, nor sadly will we be the last.
