A woman with a 91 percent chance of contracting Alzheimer's disease, a leading neurologist and Alzheimer's expert, and their mission to tackle one of the scariest illnesses of our day. Fighting for My Life as a practical, helpful guide for any person impacted by the shadow of Alzheimer's Disease. Now available in trade paper.
Jamie Tyrone was forty-nine years old when she learned she had a genetic predisposition toward Alzheimer's disease. In fact, her genes translated to a 91 percent chance that she would contract the disease during her lifetime.
Yes, 91 percent. Almost a guarantee.
As a former nurse, and with her family's history of suffering from Alzheimer's, Jamie knew what she was up against. But she decided to take action rather than concede defeat. She started by founding B.A.B.E.S (Beating Alzheimer's By Embracing Science) to raise money and awareness in the search for a cure. Energized by that community, Jamie teamed up with renowned neurologist Dr. Marwan Sabbagh to write Fighting for My Life as a practical, helpful guide for any person impacted by the shadow of Alzheimer's Disease.
In Fighting for My Life, readers will:
- Gain expert medical advice from Dr. Sabbagh on how to fight back against Alzheimer's
- Discover the pros, cons and possible dangers of genetic testing
