Nancy opens up to Michael about her husband Ed’s short battle with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a brain disorder that leads to dementia and death. Shortly after Ed retired, he developed a ringing in his ear and began to forget things. Clinicians discovered the cause, and within four short weeks Ed had slipped into a coma and passed away. Nancy says her faith gave her the strength to get through this tough time. Edit credit: Sean Collins
