Call in to speak with the host


Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of old age.  Early-onset Alzheimer’s affects people younger than age 65, and nearly four percent of the more than five million Americans with Alzheimer’s have younger-onset.

At first, Diane Farley was just a bit forgetful. But when her behavior became concerning, her family embarked on a journey of hope, despair, disappointment, and ultimately acceptance. All We Need Is A Happy Ending is Diane’s story, told by her younger sister, Renae Farley, who was aboard for the whole roller-coaster ride after Diane was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

Renae Farley joins host Michele Mattia to discuss her family’s journey with Diane from insurance forms and doctors to holistic practitioners and easing Diane’s growing bewilderment.  Join Michele and Renae at 2pm ET for an inspired hour honoring the power of unconditional love!
