Marty Schreiber, the former Governor of Wisconsin, wished he was better prepared when his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. He was inspired to write a book about the experience of living and loving someone with Alzheimer's and has traveled around the country teaching others. We spoke to him about his book My Two Elaine's and how he spreads hope to other struggling caregivers.
