Whether it be a vaccination, a pill, anything. Families are losing family members because of this, and the government is only giving $600 million while they are giving $3-$5.3 billion dollars a year to cancer. I am not trying to rule out any type of disease or anything, but come on government, Alzheimer’s is just as important as cancer. I hope people will stop taking Alzheimer 's for granted, and not paying any mind to other families that are losing family members. I hope scientists will find a cure for both cancer and Alzheimer 's and they will reach their goal!
Normally a young male is in a vegetative state within two to five years of diagnosis, unless symptoms are not to far advance. Unfortunately for PJ he was too far advanced and did pass away in February 2015 from this horrible disease. But he did save his brother’s life and Kody has not shown symptoms and has not needed treatment as of date. When the time comes Janelle is prepared to have Kody receive the bone marrow transplant and stop the disease in its tracks.
A sick society dependant on health care is a controllable society. To undergo a stem cell transplant could mean the end of MS. Therefore, no more MRI 'S, no medication, no doctors visits. When the insurance analyzes this they do not take the overall wellbeing of the patient in mind, what they
The TSA suffers from the very same issues that have plagued the Veterans Administration for years, the problem is government employees. Once someone becomes a government employee and they have served beyond the probation period, trying to remove them it is like treating terminal cancer; you can try to treat it, but it will not go away. Replace senior federal leadership with professionals that have not been part of the problem from the start. “Employees know they work for “the government” and know their employment is guaranteed for life; with a few rare exceptions. They also know that the people who they provide services to are not who they work for” (Satterfield, 2015).
What will the doctors tell the family members of the patient? Something like, “We didn’t try to save his or her life because a machine said he or she wouldn’t make it”? That would be absolutely unheard of and completely unethical and many hospitals would have an insane amount of issues from the family members of those patients. Some may say that it allows a more effective use of limited medical resources, due to the fact that the patient would have to go under expensive procedures even though they most likely will not live. Although, every patient should be treated equally no matter their condition because one may never know that they may actually save a life against all odds, it has happened before.
The difference between hospitalization and Hospice is the administration of treatment. Hospice care only treats symptoms and focuses on pain management instead of seeking a cure to a terminal illness. A person that is put on Hospice care is usually given only six months to live. It seems like cruel punishment to prolong the miserable suffering life of a person that is past the point of no return and simply wants to die in peace. Although licensed personnel can give higher doses of pain medication to lessen the suffering, they can be prosecuted in Alabama if the doses are lethal, and patients may not be able to communicate their pain to the appropriate authoritative

Aid in dying is no more a suicide than other forms of hastening death, and the California End of Life Option Act clearly states that actions taken within that act are not a suicide or assisted suicide. And such language has been rejected by the American Public Health Association, the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, the American Medical Women’s Association and the American Medical Student Association, among others. These are dying patients.
Adeline has had Alzheimer’s disease for six years now; she has been fighting hard but her disease is only getting worse. Her family has done all they could, getting her medicine, caregivers, and showing her great care themselves; but nothing will cure her dreadful disease. Her family is watching her slowing fall, further and further away each year, coming to realize one day they will lose their beloved Adeline to this horrific disease. Adeline no longer recalls who her grandchildren are, but her grandchildren and numerous others will forever remember her. Alzheimer’s disease is a “progressive mental deterioration that can occur in middle or old age, due to generalized degeneration of the brain.
Research shows that more doctors these days are trying to cure Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s prevents the brain of thinking and remembering certain things people have experienced in their lifetimes. But, many people are asking if there is evidence that shows Alzheimer’s is preventable. Yes, there is tangible evidence that shows Alzheimer’s is preventable by maintaining a healthy diet, managing stress, and having an active lifestyle.
Alzheimer’s Compromise Discovering the best care for alzheimer's patients is a never ending controversy many families are faced with. I can say from experience that my family and I put in a lot of time and love when caring for my grandpa who had alzheimer's. Growing up my grandpa and I were very close. He was a very strong and smart man who worked in the health department and was even a veteran of the U.S army. He was a man no one would ever have predicted to get alzheimer's.
