Adapted by Lisa Genova bestseller "Still Alice"
At age fifty, Alice Howland has it all: a Columbia University linguistics professorship, a devoted husband, and three loving children. Her life is a whirlwind of work and family, and she thrives on it.
While on her regular run across campus, Alice loses all sense of her bearings - the bottom just drops out; she goes blank. Although she keeps this from her family, Alice begins to see a neurologist and goes through a battery of tests. She is convinced she has a brain tumor, but the doctor raises an even more disturbing likelihood: Early Onset Alzheimer’s disease. It's at this point Alice breaks down and tells her husband, John.
At the next family gathering Alice breaks the news. The children are all stunned by this revelation and find it difficult to process. Throughout the following weeks, Alice has to deal with the ramifications of the disease on her marriage, her family and her career. Then, when summer spent at a beach house brings a sense of renewal, Alice struggles against all odds to maintain her life, her relationships, and her sense of self.
