This page is in memory or in honor of some special people I've known who had diseases other
than Alzheimer's. These links might also be helpful to Alzheimer's caregivers if their patient
has one of these diseases in addition to Alzheimer's. Some are also diseases that caregivers
themselves may be having to deal with, especially those near the bottom of the page which
strike mainly women ages 25-55.

In Honor of Karen
My friend Karen has osteoarthritis. She is a working on her Ph.D. at Florida State and works full-time
in the library. After waiting a long time, she was finally able to have knee-replacement surgery in
April 1998. It worked well for one knee, but she had surgery again on the other knee Feb. 15, 1999
Surgery could not be completed, because the infection in that knee was so bad. She had surgery
again in April 1999 and seems to be recovering well now.
