Seattle’s Collin Tong was on KING 5’s New Day Northwest program March 18 to talk about his book “Into the Storm: Journeys Through Alzheimer’s.” The book details his and others’ experiences caring for people with Alzheimer’s Disease. Tong’s wife died in 2011, after a 12-year struggle with early-onset Alzheimer’s.
Tong was joined on the New Day Northwest set by Bob Le Roy, executive director of Western and Central Washington State Chapter for the Alzheimer’s Association, and former NBC news correspondent Margaret Larson. Tong is a writer for Seattle’s online website, Crosscut.com. (end)
