When Julie and Tom were married, they made a vow to remain by each other's side, through sickness and in health.Now 45 years later, Tom struggles to keep his promise to his wife, who no longer knows his name, or how to dress herself.Sadly, Julie is one of4.5 million Americans over the age of 65 who suffer from Alzheimer's disease, a progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and can make it difficult or impossible to carry out even the simplest tasks. However, there is a reason to believe that neither memory loss nor Alzheimer's disease are inevitable.
