FTD: the most common dementia for people under age 60.
|Debbie and John Baumgartner were looking forward to a relaxing retirement together, but their plans changed after John was diagnosed with FTD. Read Debbie and John’s story, then, as you think about year-end giving, will you consider making a donation to AFTD? We work every day to drive research for a cure so that people like the Baumgartners can enjoy the retirement they deserve.|
