In Loving Memory of:

“Mom” Nov 21, 1951- March 13, 2013, diagnosed at 56
 “Nanny” June 13, 1928 – November 3, 2013, diagnosed at 79, a few months after her daughter


Overview:

This Blog is dedicated to our mother, Mary Hall, and our grandmother, Margaret Flanagan “Nanny” and the millions of other care givers and loved ones that have been affected by Dementia. 
While Alzheimer’s is a well-known dementia, it is not the only kind.  Therefore, this blog was set up to bring awareness of another dementia, FTD, that often strikes a younger population (50s and 60s) and hopefully raise funds for a cure. 
Penny For Their Thoughts tells the story of Mary’s journey through Frontotemporal Dementia  (FTD).
