One woman's accidental discovery that she had a 91% chance of getting Alzheimer's disease—and her journey to fighting her genetic destiny.

Jamie Tyrone was forty-nine years old when she learned she had a genetic predisposition toward Alzheimer's disease—in fact, her genes translated to a 91 percent chance that she would contract that disease during her lifetime. Surprised by the way she learned of the diagnosis through genetic testing, and painfully familiar with Alzheimer's because of her family history and her experience as a nurse, Jamie felt as if she had a ticking time-bomb inside her, ready to go off at any moment.

This book is unique because it offers expert medical advice from Dr. Sabbagh alongside Jamie's real-life experiences as a woman living in the shadow of Alzheimer's. In addition, Fighting for My Life is one of the only books on the market that takes an honest look at the pros, cons and possible dangers of genetic testing.
