Can't predict.: These things take loads of money, research and time to impact. All these diseases are major, so for now, treatment is palliative, educational, and where available, progress-slowing (LOTS of Tx for this)--but not cures. Meanwhile, get some support, through groups or therapy and keep an eye on the research journals for each disease.
