friends – and Azlheimer’s disease

When we first moved to Seguin, we met some very nice folks who became friends.  That was more than eleven years ago.  A few years later, friend David was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and of course, our hearts were broken and our prayers for our friends are fervent and continuous.

David’s wife told us that, along with several other medications, David has begun taking coconut oil/combination in his diet – which will hopefully alter the progression of the disease.  What marvelous news!  Wouldn’t it be nice if these dedicated scientists discover a cure for this terrible disease?  However, medicines and diets that deter the agonizing progression of this Soul Stealer is hopeful.

God bless our friends.

  1. Dear Hope,
    Thank you so much for publishing this information on your blog!!

    David took his second packet of Axona (coconut oil) this morning. I’m praying and hoping we’ll see some improvement. The neurologist was excited that some of his patient’s had improved test scores.
    Love,
    Dolores
