Dan Gasby has been a television media sales executive and a television producer for both network & syndicated programs. He helped publish and launch B. Smith’s eponymous magazine and helped cofound her lifestyle retail brand. At 66, restaurateur, magazine publisher, celebrity chef, and nationally known lifestyle maven, B. Smith is struggling with a tag she never expected: Alzheimer’s patient. In Before I Forget: Love, Hope, Help, and Acceptance in Our Fight Against Alzheimer’s (Harmony), Smith and her husband, Dan Gasby, working with Vanity Fair contributing editor Michael Shnayerson, bravely share their story. In chapters that interweave their narrative with practical and helpful advice, readers learn about dealing with Alzheimer’s day-to-day challenges: the family realities and tensions, ways of coping, coming research that may tip the scale, as well as lessons learned along the way. Harry Belafonte writes, “An important story, told with utter honesty.”
