Matt is a disabled Army Veteran, a fighter, & is a amazing man! He went to a geneticist and he was tested/diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers. He carries the PSEN1 gene mutation for Early onset Alzheimers.
Early Onset Alzheimers runs rampant through his mom's side of his family. He's lost his mom (all her nine siblings), his brother, sister, grandma, great grandfather, & some cousins have had it or are fighting this horrible terminal disease right now. He was diagnosed at 41, he is 46 now. But he's been having signs/symptoms since he was 35 years old. It goes back four plus generations on his mom's side of his family. His children also have a 50/50 chance of inheriting the gene. If they do, it’s a 96% chance that they will become symptomatic also.
