The search for a cure remains elusive to researchers because the exact cause of the disease is unknown. Steadfast Alzheimer’s researcher, Professor Eitan Okun shares information about the factors which may lead to Alzheimer’s disease as well as prevention and treatment tactics. And, Author Simon McDermott shares his first-hand experience of how his father’s sudden shift affected his family and the joyful, viral video that created a community for other struggling caregivers.

Professor Eitan Okun has been a ‘lifer’ at Bar Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel, having earned his master’s and doctorate in immunology there. His master’s research analyzed how stress can affect a person’s immunity to various diseases. For his doctorate, he concentrated on the immune system – specifically how different nodes in our immune system respond to various threats. While Alzheimer’s is Dr. Okun’s primary focus, he is also conducting studies in other areas. In 2015, he received a grant from the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help look for Parkinson’s disease in an MRI.
Simon “Mac” McDermott is the son of club singer Teddy Mac – ‘The Songaminute Man’. In 2013, Ted developed Alzheimer’s Disease which made him violent and aggressive. After receiving support from the Alzheimer’s Society, Simon decided to raise money on their behalf, as well as share his Dad’s voice with the world. He recorded videos of his father singing in the car and uploaded them to Facebook. A viral sensation overnight with over 60 million views worldwide, they’ve also raised over 200 thousand dollars.
