Lee Holloway

I didn’t know much about FTD (frontotemporal dementia) until I read Lee Holloway’s brave story via Wired:

Regardless of cause, the prognosis is grim. There’s no treatment. Lee’s doctors warned that his symptoms would grow worse, and that over time he would likely stop talking, become immobile, and struggle to swallow, until eventually an infection or injury would likely turn fatal. The best the doctors could recommend was eating a balanced diet and getting exercise.

Heart-breaking for him and his family.
