Duration: 7 hours 36 minutes
Imagine hearing these words: 'She has Alzheimer's.'
Now imagine that 'she' is vibrant, active, loving, healthy...and just fifty-five.
Acclaimed CBS News reporter Barry Petersen writes about hearing the unimaginable; what it meant, what it still means, what he did-and didn't do-and how this beautiful love story needs to be heard by the thousands of families who have already heard that same devastating diagnosis: EARLY ONSET ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE.
Even though Barry has spent his long-time, award-winning television career covering wars and events that shaped the world, he was not even slightly prepared for what happened to his darling wife, Jan, and how it would impact his life.
