About the Book

I was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease in December 2017. I published Waiting For When I forget I have Alzheimer’s YEAR ONE in February 2019. This new book: Traveling With Alzheimer’s YEAR TW0 was finished in December 2019. I am presently working on the YEAR THREE BOOK and should finish it in December 2020. I believe the reader will be surprised by my disease progression over the first two years. I clearly document how the diagnosis was made in the YEAR ONE book In this second I wanted to demonstrate that people with Alzheimer’s can travel. I encourage people to have fun in the early stages of their disease rather than struggle trying to find a cure. I myself am in a non-treatment trial. I write about getting my second round of scans in YEAR TWO. I am not told the results of these tests. I am donating my brain to the trail. It’s all about paying it forward. I review the recent major drug trial failure and articles and books about Alzheimer’s. I try to break up the sober information with fun information about my trips. I have 5 cruises planned for YEAR THREE so stay tuned. You can read about it in real time on my blog. Or follow me on twitter on @brianedwardsMD
