When Kate Swaffer was diagnosed with 'Younger Onset Dementia' at 49, the advice given to her by the health sector was to go home and die. She was told directly "get your end-of-life affairs in order" and that at best, she had 8-10 years to live. Well, she's now 65 and seems just fine to me. Not only is she defying the odds, her continued health and ability to function (despite her cognitive and neurological issues) has really been inconvenient and annoying for some. I found Kate to be inspiring, insightful and extremely resourceful and creative. You'll love her.
