Jaye is not only the angel to talk to about Multi-Infarcted Dementia, but also one of the people who inspired me to create the "Other Dementia" site. Her husband was diagnosed with MID and she came to the Alzheimer's site in hopes of finding some info on it. We began to write to each other and I remember her words exactly. "Tay, why can't there be a site that has information about the other diseases that cause dementia"....and I thought, yes, indeed, why can't there? And so the rest is history.
