    Your work is greatly appreciated. This is a cruel–horrifying disease. All suffer, the patient, the caregivers, all the survivors who watch what can happen to their loved one and have no control nor anywhere they can go, except maybe to pages as you are so diligent trying to keep up with….thank you.
