One fall morning almost three years ago, at the age of 46, Laura Mercer, a Charlotte Public Relations Executive, woke up and didn’t know who she was. After multiple tests, she and her family learned that she had early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. The news has been life-changing for Laura’s entire family and a story that is repeated, increasingly, around the country. Laura joins us, along with a panel of experts, to tell her story.
