Event description

Description

According to the Alzheimer's Association, one in nine Americans over age 65 has Alzheimer's, and the majority of those with the disease are over age 75. For UK-based artist William Utermohlen, the symptoms began in his late 50's and he was diagnosed with the degenerative brain disease before he even reached the age of 65.
