Description

Alzheimer's disease is a life-altering challenge for not only the people with the disease but also those who care for and about them. Getting the diagnosis in midlife poses another level of unique and difficult challenges. Too Soon to Forget, a documentary for public television, shares the emotional experience of nine families living with younger onset Alzheimer's disease. Premiering at Elmhurst College, the documentary is narrated by Dan Gasby, husband of celebrity chef and lifestyle maven B. Smith, who was diagnosed with younger onset Alzheimer's at the age 62. A panel discussion will follow the screaning, featuring director-producer Ted Kay and medical experts from the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center.
