SCHERERVILLE | For 20 years, Cyndi Vanek, 44, has battled a rare brain structure disorder called Chiari malformation, which are structural defects in the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance, located near the brain stem.
It takes sharp, active minds and reduces them to voids in which fathers don't know daughters and wives don't know husbands.
Can you imagine waking up and not remembering your own son or daughter? Well, that was the case with both of my grandmothers. They had Alzheimer's, a neurological disease that affects the brain and causes those afflicted with it to slowly and increasingly forget.
