KSTP – Woman Helps People World Wide Cope with Dementia

Hi Everyone,

This is the news feature KSTP – Channel 5, did on Alzheimer’s Speaks yesterday.  This is the full 4 minute version.  I know many people have contacted me saying they were not local and couldn’t see it or missed it so here it is.

I think John Gross did a great job.  He has been working on this piece for months!  I can’t thank him enough for helping us raise awareness about dementia.

If you would all be so kind to make a comment on the KSTP Page, talking about the importance of coverage of this disease; maybe the station as a whole will decide to so more stories to help people.  By working together we can make a difference… We are making a difference!

Thank you to all of my supporters.  I couldn’t do what I do without your love and support.

You truly are the best!
