In honor of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in November, the community is invited to A Morning to Remember, an entertaining and educational breakfast event co-sponsored by FOX 2 at the Southfield Public Library (26300 Evergreen Road) on Friday, November 12 at 9:30 a.m. featuring nationally known legacy expert attorneys and authors Danielle and Andrew Mayoras. Alzheimer’s disease — which affects approximately 5.3 million Americans – is a growing epidemic. One troubling side effect of the illness is the rising number of estate battles erupting over competency issues.
Gaining national attention from the Rachael Ray Show, Forbes, the Washington Post, LA Times and Associated Press, Andrew and Danielle Mayoras will speak at the event to highlight the importance of proper estate planning, especially when questions of competency are at hand. The co-authors of Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights! use memorable celebrity cases as examples for families to learn from, including those of Marlon Brando, Michael Jackson, Jimmy Hendrix and Anna Nicole Smith.
Don L. Rosenberg, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Alzheimer’s Association-Greater Michigan Chapter and shareholder of Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras, P.C., in Troy, will introduce the program. The Greater Michigan Chapter, which is co-sponsoring the event with the Center for Elder Law in Troy, works to provide vital programs and services to meet the needs of over 75,000 individuals with Alzheimer’s in the Metro Detroit area and nearly 135,000 throughout the chapter. Programs include the Harry L. Nelson Helpline (800-272-3900), support groups, counseling, adult day programs and educational programs.
Danielle and Andrew Mayoras will be signing copies of Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights!, with 20 percent of book sales benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association-Greater Michigan Chapter. www.trialandheirs.com for more info.
