Join the cause! Starting in June, 2012, we want to get 5000 more people to watch this video and know the early signs of FTD (frontotemporal dementia) because early detection matters! Find out if you or a loved one are at risk for frontotemporal disease, a dementia that hits people in their 40s and 50s — and sometimes earlier. We hope you’ll get involved and spread awareness by asking your friends to watch this video. Early detection matters. Know the early signs of FTD. Follow this link to causes.com to learn more. The only cost is your time, and the results can be life-changing.
FTDPlanningForHope.com is the Website with more details about FTD and the film, including a contact page and High Definition DVD ordering information.
Along with the producers – who are part of our FTD “community” – we hope to hear not only from persons with FTD and other dementias, but also from persons with ideas and/or resources to help get this film shown and distributed to health care providers, persons with dementia, their caregivers, and other family members.
