It’s getting to be golf season! The Morettis and the Marcys hosted the 2nd Annual Carlo William Moretti Memorial Golf Outing on July 15 at the Yankee Springs Golf Course in Wayland, Michigan. The event drew 40 golfers, with an additional 20 people joining for dinner. The 12th Annual George F. Sidoris Memorial Golf Outing took place July 22; nearly 150 golfers convened at the Lost Nation Municipal Golf Course in Willoughby, OH. All proceeds from both events will benefit AFTD.
The family of former New York Congressman Maurice D. Hinchey announced that he has the primary progressive aphasia variant of FTD. Hinchey’s career in public service spanned 38 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and New York State Assembly. By going public with the diagnosis, Hinchey’s family hopes to raise awareness of FTD. An article published in the Daily Freeman has more of the congressman’s story. A WBNG-12 news story contains additional information.
If you, a loved one or a friend has been diagnosed with FTD, we want to hear your story. Joining the FTD Disorders Registry will help advance the science of FTD research — the information you provide will guide further research into earlier diagnosis, therapies and ultimately a cure.
