Join us for ‘A Journey Through Alzheimer’s’ Wednesday


An increasing number of people are getting early-onset Alzheimer’s, meaning they get it before the age of 65. For one local family, it came much earlier than that.

NBC4’s “A Journey Through Alzheimer’s” will air at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 2. We’ll talk with a leading Alzheimer’s researcher and tell you about the warning signs, and we will also have a few personal stories. Colleen Marshall lost her mother this year, and Ben Gelber has been caring for his father, who lives with Alzheimer’s. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
