82. It's Not a Rumour | Renee Schyjer

• 61 min

IT’S NOT A RUMOUR - A Rock and Roll Journey through Life and Alzheimer’s. This is the incredible story of an unsung hero of 70's & 80's music scene - Freddy Moore or Rick Moore as he was known off-stage. For years, Freddy was center stage. A prolific singer/songwriter/musician who sold out iconic Los Angeles clubs and opened for headlining bands like The Police, The Knack, and The Motels.. yet, despite having hugely successful bands, that never translated to the right record deal for him and the other band members to sign.   He was also the first husband of Demi Moore, and it is through that connection, that Rick came to meet and get to know the true love of his life, Renee Schyjer - who is my guest today.  Renne is a Renaissance woman, truth-seeker, and storyteller, devoted to sharing the life and legacy of her husband, Freddy Moore, who was diagnosed over a decade ago with early-onset Alzheimer's. This is their story.   In this episode, Renee shares the following: The background on this incredible musician and prolific learner The connection between Demi Moore, Rick, and Renee  The journey of identifying something was wrong and getting the diagnosis What the connection between Type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's is What helped prolong Rick's life What you need to be aware of taking supplements Some thoughts on what you can do to help yourself as the primary carer ... and so much more!   Quote: "I just had to keep reassuring him everything was okay. But by myself, like in the car driving home or driving to work or even at work, I was a wreck. I was a mess." ~ Renee Schyjer     Resources:   Renee's links: Purchase It's Not a Rumour: Website: Facebook: IG:       Follow me on: Email:  Instagram: Facebook: Website: YouTube:   Loved this episode?
