BOSTON (CBS) – Greg O’Brien, an award-winning journalist, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2009, at the age of 59. Having already seen his grandfather and mother go through the disease, O’Brien had more first-hand knowledge of it than most when they receive the devastating diagnosis. Staying true to his journalistic instincts, O’Brien immediately began documenting his journey, writing about an experience that few if any have been able to capture on paper. He joins Dan, along with expert Dr. Molly Perdue, to talk about this scary and often misunderstood disease.
