Still Alice - A story of love, family and hope

Julianne Moore, Maria Shriver, Kristen Stewart, Sandy Oltz, Lisa Genova, Dr. Maria Carrillo, Elizabeth Gelfand Stearns—these are some of the amazing women behind "Still Alice," a movie that gives us a rare window into the experience of living with Alzheimer's disease—a glimpse of the inside looking out.

Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore), a renowned linguistics professor, starts to forget words. When she receives a diagnosis of younger-onset Alzheimer's disease, Alice and her family (daughter played by Kristen Stewart) find their bonds thoroughly tested. Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking and inspiring.

There will be a Chapter event around the release of the film, so check back with us here or on Facebook.
