Alzheimer's. Just hearing the word makes my heart lurch and my body tense up. It's a disease that has hit very close to home for me. Both my grandmother and now my sweet Daddy are victims of Alzheimer's disease. Yet I'm a believer that the more we talk about it, the closer we get to effective treatments and a cure. The more stories we share with one another, the more hopeful we become - and the less alone we feel. A recent AARP radio series helps to do just that. "Beyond the Face of Alzheimer's," from Barbara Kline and Kathy Bernard, cohosts of the 2 Boomer Babes Radio Hour, gives voice to those with Alzheimer's as well as their caregivers. The series won a Gracie Award for best lifestyle/health coverage.
