8 People Voted for Joseph Potocny for the PHBA 2009!

Comments: I think Joe should win this award because he has turned his personal tragedy into an informative and insightful blog for those us affected (not afflicted) with Alzheimer's.

I think that the way he writes about the way Alzheimers is affecting his life is something people should hear.


Because he tells it like it is for him with passion and, usually, some humor.  I admire Mr. Potocny and am glad his blog is there to read.

Because it is my blog and it tells the truth and paints no rosey pictures for the disease of Dementia in any form. I suffer from AD & FTD still able to write, cann't drive, do the check book, remember to pay bills and forget what day it is and even family names frequently now.  Read my blog and see what you think of it. Both here and at the link belows.

Congratulations, Joseph Potocny!
