An amazing account of Chris Graham's Dementia Adventure. Having been found to be carrying the faulty gene which would give him the early onset dementia which his family suffered from, Chris decides to cycle around North America to raise funds for more research into the illness. Each chapter gives details of his journey and his life story from childhood. This is a very remarkable man and a true hero in every sense of the word.
