The DeMoe family has the most devastating form of the disease that there is: early onset Alzheimer’s. Of the six DeMoe children whose father had it, five have inherited the gene. But rather than give up in the face of such news, the DeMoes have agreed to spend their precious, abbreviated years as part of a worldwide study that could utterly change the landscape of Alzheimer’s research. Join author Niki Kapsambelis and CofC Professor Cindi May as they discuss the Demoes’ tale and the cutting-edge research that brings us ever closer to a possible cure.
