Have You Heard About Greg? (HYHAG) puts a human face on the most terrifying disease of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The heart of the story is the resilient spirit of the O'Brien family that has already lost several family members in their fight against Alzheimer’s. Greg O'Brien, a lifelong award winning investigative reporter, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at the age of 59 and has committed his QTR (Quality Time Remaining) to getting people talking about this quiet killer and increase the research funding. This is a unique cinematic journey through Alzheimer's with Faith, Hope and Humor featuring an array of dedicated experts who have joined the fight who will hopefully inspire you to get involved.
There are over 6 million people living in the US who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s/Dementia. The goals of the film are to get people talking about a far more impactful and much more damaging quiet pandemic that threatens to destroy the US health care system along with millions of lives by 2050. This threat is real.
