no title

Julianne Moore has apparently put in the performance of her lifetime in Still Alice… we mean, she even garnered a nomination for her role at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards!

The film features Julianne's characters and her struggles after she's given a "devastating diagnosis" and oh gosh we're going to need ALL the tissues!

Kristen Stewart and Kate Bosworth are also in it, doin' their actress things.

We have to admit — this looks pretty darn good! It's in select theaters as we speak, and we're hoping it goes wider after the awards!

Sigh. We definitely will be needing those tissues now.

A man with Alzhiemer's lost the ability to speak, but when the family dog came around? Something amazing happened!

Alzheimer's is a disease that's seriously hard to cope with.

It doesn't just affect the sick person, it affects everyone around them. It's an awful disease that steals a person's soul.

Kristen Stewart & Julianne Moore Look Really Upset About Something…

kristen julianne alice nyc

Why so serious, ladies?!

Kristen Stewart and her co-star Julianne Moore look deep in thought while shooting takes for their new flick Still Alice in New York on Friday!

The 23-year-old Twilight actress stars in the film as the daughter of Julianne‘s character, a professor diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease.

Naturally a sad subject, so we understand why they look so sullen on set!

The film is set to be released early next year, and it's sure to be a tear jerker…

We can't wait to see this duo play mother-daughter on the big screen.

It's going to be brazilliant!

Bobby Womack, soul singing legend, has been diagnosed with early Alzheimer's!

Oh no! That's so sad.

We previously mentioned that Womack had just survived colon cancer and some pretty bad pneumonia.

It's only the very beginning but the dementia can rapidly progress and get much worse in a short amount of time.

Scientists Find Skin Cancer Drug That Reverses Alzheimer's In Mice

Filed under: FitnessHealthMental HealthScience!

Yay for science!

Researchers found that a skin cancer treatment cured Alzheimer's disease in mice VERY quickly!

In a study by Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, researchers gave mega doses of bexarotene to Alzheimer's stricken mice. Within 72 hours, the mice's memory improved and half of the amyloid plaque was gone.

The scientists are quick to point that it is mice, not humans, they're dealing with.

But there is good news; since bexarotene is already FDA approved, the next phase can happen sooner than if it was a new drug.

The next phase includes testing on healthy and cancer stricken patients.

Let's hope the success continues!
