Carl shares his story
“When I began using Prevagen, I began to improve.”
Carl, 82 - Preacher, Stenographer and Good Samaritan
Going down the road of life if you find yourself someday out in the Land of Enchantment and could use a little help, you’d be fortunate to meet an 82-year-old guy named Carl. He’s a true believer of the parable of The Good Samaritan and his life’s work has been pretty much all about helping others.
“I started my career after I graduated from a Presbyterian seminary and became a minister with the Presbyterian Church and served several churches,” he says. “But most of my time for about 30 years was devoted to taking care of children who were unwanted, abused neglected. I took care of about two thousand kids during that time, including those in foster care, emergency shelters, residential treatment centers, and group homes.”
Most of his work with youngsters was done in Texas and then Carl decided to make a change in his life’s work. He and his wife moved to New Mexico where he became a stenographer at municipal offices and courts in the City of Santa Fe. He reports, “I’ve now retired as a minister, but I still preach. I have a couple of rural churches in New Mexico, where they cannot afford a full-time minister.”
Then Carl sums up how he’s led his life by saying, “There's nothing very remarkable about my life. I've always been a person of compassion, and that's what led me to help kids beginning with helping runaway kids mostly. I am very good active listener with people. I do believe in prayer, and I pray for quite a few people who need help. I believe in parable of the Good Samaritan…I believe in helping people who are in trouble and need help.”
He adds, “About three years ago, as I was nearing my Eighties, I began to feel less sharp.” Three years ago, as he began to sense some slippage , Carl noticed TV commercials about other people who’ve found help with mild age-related memory issues by using Prevagen, he decided to give it a try. “When I began using Prevagen, I began to improve,” he reports.For a fellow whose whole life has been about listening to the needs and the problems of others, finding something that helps himself has been a true blessing.
