39-year-old with Alzheimer's raising money for Alzheimer's research

'I'm 39 and have Alzheimer's disease'

"To outward appearances Chris Graham is a fit and apparently healthy 39-year-old. But the former soldier also has early onset Alzheimer's disease. He inherited an extremely rare form of the condition from his father who died when he was aged just 42. His brother Tony, who is four years older, is also affected and now needs round-the-clock care - he is tube-fed and unable to speak. Chris - who had to leave the Army on medical grounds in January - is already suffering memory problems. ...

Next month Chris will set off on a 16,000-mile, year-long bike ride around the coasts of Canada and the United States. He's raising money for Alzheimer's Research UK and ABF The Soldiers' Charity."
