A High-Speed Internet connection is needed for the best online viewing experience.
Planning for Hope captures some of the most brilliant and passionate researchers exploring early diagnoses for this rare disease. Frontotemporal Disease or Dementia (FTD) has been misdiagnosed along with other neurodegenerative diseases that cause dementia in young people in their 40s, at the peak of their careers and in the prime of their lives. Most importantly, families have stepped forward in this poignant documentary to share their heart-wrenching stories of perpetual grieving, amidst financial struggles and caring for their loved ones. Sharing another aspect of hope, professionals explore financial and estate planning for FTD victims and their families. Today, there is no single known cause, treatment or cure for FTD. However, the film provides hope for the future as science is moving at a fast pace.
