What increasingly common disease has no survivors? There are survivors of cancer, heart attacks, lung disease, kidney transplants. This disease has no cure, no transplants, no medication and is starting to effect Americans as young as thirty years old. It is Alzheimer’s disease. The steady loss of memory over time. It is not caused by any trauma or from a violent accident, it just happens. It bothers the people that are supposed to be remembered more than the memory loss person. They are at peace with themselves.
