“I have early onset of Alzheimer’s, and what that means is that I don’t always remember what I’ve just said. You could say that it’s tragic, or you could think it’s wonderful.”
There's an evident bond between father-daughter duo Bruce Geiger, of Dayton, and Sarah Hewitt, of Centerville. Bruce was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease at age 69. He is happy to reflect with his daughter on his life before the disease erases his memory. Sarah has the opportunity to ask her father all the questions she has always wondered about.
