Kidney failure? Nah. Heart failure. Wait... no Kidney issues for sure. But what about the vegetables in his heart? Er... Vegetation in the heart? All we know is, Ken was all sorts of messed up.

Jewelia is a kindhearted and thoughtful meditation teacher, who (like all of us) owes half of her genetic makeup to her Dad - a world renowned sports psychologist with Alzheimer's disease. Wait, what?!
Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia and memory loss and after that opening statement there's probably a billion questions you might have but perhaps the most puzzling one we had was: how does Jewelia tell her dad that he's sick and have him remember he's sick?
Chew on that for a minute...
Alzheimer's can be one of the most difficult things to watch a loved one suffer with, but simultaneously there are some genuinely comedic moments. Join us as we sift through those stories with Jewelia and get to know her experience with all of it!
