Alzheimer's has no cure, drugs only slow down the trajectory of the disease. It is a disease that takes away your individuality, your personality, your beliefs, your memories and so much more. Ultimately, you completely lose who you are - the person you have become from the time you were born. 

I am a Nurse Practitioner who managed the care of patients and their families with Alzheimer's. One special lady Estelle who was in her 90s was special to me. The first time I met her she gave me a big smile and tight hug and started writing a poem. I found out she has been doing so for a while and later she was honored at the Nursing Home with a compilation of all her poems. I kept the poem and the compilation for years. She initially had no other chronic medical problems except Alzheimers with her memory waxing and waning. I remember the last conversation with her when she was trying to decide if she should have surgery for her heart. She was told she may pass away during surgery. She decided to do it and passed away. The day prior, she said and I am paraphrasing "I don't think I have anything to lose at this point in my life, if it succeeds then who knows how many more days I can treasure". 

Thank you, Salamat po, 

Arlene
