Meet Janet and Danny
Janet came from a large, loving Albertan family. Her adventurous spirit meant she was always on the go, trying new things and exploring new horizons. After law school Janet started her own practice, all the while raising a young family with her husband, Daniel. There was no slowing her down. Until the fall of 2010 when everything changed.
She’d begun to notice a few signs. She was struggling to keep her meeting notes straight and making decisions was becoming more difficult. As her symptoms worsened, Janet had to close the practice she loved so much and in 2014 she had to stop driving. Her husband Danny left the job he loved to care for the woman he loved more.
