It has been said that everyone knows a cancer survivor, but no one knows an Alzheimer’s survivor. Now you can hear directly from the first survivors themselves — the first stories of hope.

Dale Bredesen’s first two books presented his groundbreaking research and the program that not only prevents but reverses cognitive decline, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Now at last we hear from the first survivors of this formerly fatal diagnosis.

These first person accounts honestly detail the fear, struggle, and ultimate victory of each patient’s journey. They vividly describe what it is like to have Alzheimer’s. They also drill down on how these patients made the program work for them — the challenges, the workarounds, the encouraging results that are so motivating. Dr. Bredesen includes commentary following each story to help point readers to the tips and tricks that might help them as well.

Dr. Bredesen’s patients have not just survived; they have thrived to rediscover fulfilling lives, rewarding relationships, and meaningful work. This book will give unprecedented hope to patients and their families.

The day has come. Alzheimer’s patients are now recovering. And this momentous shift has not been brought about by the development of a meaningful pharmaceutical intervention, but rather, by the multifaceted, personalized approach developed by Dr. Bredesen. The First Survivors of Alzheimer’s takes us beyond the scientific validation of this program and reveals the depth of the personal narrative of those brave and pioneering individuals who chose to participate in this vanguard, iconoclastic approach to their illness that challenged them and their loved ones to their very cores, and rewarded them with recovery.
