My husband, Chris Radcliff, was diagnosed with FTD in 2012 barely a month after our twins turned two years old. The last two and a half years of his life were spent in an assisted living facility, because he needed 24/7 care and supervision. Before FTD, he was a senior engineer, an all around great guy, and a new dad. FTD stole all of that from him, and stole him from us. He died in 2016 at the age of 53.
Now I help others going through their own FTD journeys by facilitating an AFTD-led support group, because talking to others who had been there made all the difference for me. Somehow through those tough times I found the courage, strength and resilience I needed to start this company that I’ve been dreaming about for 20 years. So when deciding how to give back, it felt like a natural fit to give 1% of our sales to the AFTD to help find a cure and to help those struggling on this difficult path.
