Life in the City of Angels. My Angel, My Mom

Mom and MeDear Mom,
This is your day, a special day and I want to share with you some really good news on this Mother’s Day.
Researchers at Duke University might be one step closer to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s. And, Researchers at Queensland Brain Institute have shown that a non-invasive ultrasound technology can be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease and restore memory.This innovative, drug-free method breaks apart the neurotoxic amyloid plaques that result in memory loss and cognitive decline. Professor Jürgen Götz, study co-author, believes the new method could revolutionize Alzheimer’s treatment: “We’re extremely excited by this innovation of treating Alzheimer’s without using drug therapeutics. The ultrasound waves oscillate tremendously quickly, activating microglial cells that digest and remove the amyloid plaques that destroy brain synapses. The word ‘breakthrough’ is often mis-used, but in this case I think this really does fundamentally change our understanding of how to treat this disease, and I foresee a great future for this approach.”
So Mom there is hope, there is a future for you and all your sweet memories. But until that day comes, let
me be your memory of a life of a woman I call Mom. I love you and Happy Mothers Day.
