Going Going: The Abduction Of A Mind is a heart-warming memoir about Alzheimer’s by Jack Weaver.
Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative disorder that causes the patient’s brain cells to break down and die. The most common sign, and usually what we see in movies and various literature, is forgetfulness. A person with Alzheimer’s tends to forget simple things that a normal person would remember. However, as the disease progresses, that person’s ability to perform ordinary tasks such as keeping up with a conversation or answering simple queries disappears gradually. Sadly, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. There are only medications to somehow slow the patient’s decline. That is why for Alzheimer patients and their families, the journey can be really difficult and arduous. In the United States, over 5 million Americans aged 65 and above have Alzheimer’s. Going Going: The Abduction Of A Mind by Jack Weaver shares the unique and amazing journey that he and wife Janey experience battling Alzheimer’s. Let us take a closer look.

“We vowed, ‘For better or worse, ’til death do us part’, when we were twenty. Each anniversary since, for the past forty-three years, we have reaffirmed that commitment at the celebration of one more year of building our love and the commencement of another year filled with new hope and anticipation.
But as the years add to our youth, we are changed. We became acquainted with the reality, and the uglier side of life, which like the incoming tide, rises slowly in our lives, bringing with it the debris of disappointment and grief.
She said she would be with me always, but now there is talk of leaving, and she speaks frequently of ‘going away’. Not that she wants to, I know. She has a stronger desire than to remain until death or the rapture, but she cannot.”(excerpt page 3 from Going Going: The Abduction Of A Mind)
