Alzheimers is the pits!

Enjoyed a brilliant concert this week by Glen Campbell, doing a farewell tour after his recent diagnosis of Alzheimers. He needed a fair bit of direction and keeping right and relied heavily on the auto cue but his voice and his playing were outstanding - what a talent. It is cruel that, daily, folks lives are affected by the rampant progression of such disease. It is also wonderful that so many sufferers refuse to lie down to it and fight it at every turn proving that diagnosis is not the last word but merely another step on a journey.

Not sure how I missed this one:)! So true, It is the pits, but we have so much to learn from the people with the diagnosis.....my heroes!! And well done to Glen Campbell for having the guts to do a farewell tour, many people would not have embraced such public acknowledgement as he has....glad you enjoyed it. Dx
