Synopsis

"Former Policeman and current Fireman, at the age of 52 learns that he is in the first stages of Early Onset Alzheimer’s disease. In this book Charles shares how he prepared himself and his family for his impending decline. He takes the reader on a journey through his past as he dissects the build-up to this earth shattering moment He searches through pivotal moments in his past for insight to the first signs of his disease, possible contributions to his current illness, and how these events aided him in dealing with what he now must face—that he will lose control over his mind, and that the people he loves the most will witness it.This book offers inspiration to those living with AD, other various long-term ailments, caring for a challenging person, and humans who recognize and finds encouragement in knowing that everyone struggles in life—some even struggle with dialing a long-distance phone number. I have been reluctant to read books of doom and gloom and was glad to find that this is not one of those books. Reading this book made me more sensitive to all the other strugglers and uplifted by their determination. I did learn a lot about how Alzheimer’s disease affects those with the disease. But it is not just a story about Alzheimer’s; it’s a story about overcoming the many obstacles in life."
