It's guaranteed to make you smile and might even make you laugh out loud!
AFTD's various programs and services are made possible by the generous contributions of friends like you who are helping change the lives of people affected by FTD. Lives of people like Bill and Sue Bishop and their son, Brad, who has FTD (read their story in the next link).
