Maria Shriver provided testimony about her father’s Alzheimer’s. New reports state that one in seven of us will get it by the time we are 65. Good Morning America interviewed one of its own to talk about his decision to take the test to show whether he was predisposed to the ravages of this disease. I had an aunt who suffered for years from this and cousins who swore that if they ever got the disease they would take their own lives.
What about you? Would you take a test to determine whether you are going to get the disease or not? Do you think the “knowing of it” would make you less fearful? Or would it ruin what good days you have left? Is knowledge power in this case?
