What you'll learn from this episode:
Alzheimer's Disease is now America's number one most feared disease; in the past 10 years, deaths from Alzheimer's and related dementias have increased 70 percent.
Worldwide, 45 million people are living with dementia, and by 2050, that number will rise to 135 million.
In the US alone, one in three seniors will die of Alzheimer's or another dementia-related disease, and it will cost the nation $203 billion this year.

How this dreaded disease has affected Michael Trainer, and what he is doing to help alleviate the suffering that Alzheimer's brings to millions.
