Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) July 04, 2013
Former lead guitarist for Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, and Kiss, Dick Wagner has found a new lease on life after being diagnosed and treated for Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH), an incurable brain condition whose only treatment option is brain surgery. Mr. Wagner's triumph over NPH is an integral part of his story. Approximately 375,000 adults are living with NPH in the United States, a condition that has come to be referred to as “the curable” dementia, as it is often misdiagnosed for Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. After brain surgery and a shunt implantation, he is back on the musical circuit inspiring his wide fan base.
The book signing and live performance will take place on July 6, 2013, at Kitchener’s Civic Square located at 200 King Street West, Kitchener, ON. His book signings are both compelling and emotional as he weaves his musical performance with his story telling. He will be promoting his newly released book, "NOT ONLY WOMEN BLEED, Vignettes from the Heart of a Rock Musician."
Mr. Wagner is available to press for interviews before and/or after the event. To schedule an interview, please contact Susan Michelson 602-920-8115.
