A Family’s Journey with Alzheimer’s: Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me
A Family’s Journey with Alzheimer’s: Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me According to recent statistics, more than 5 million Americans are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease – that’s one out of three seniors. In 2016, Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases will cost our nation more than $236 billion. This disease kills more people than breast and prostate cancer combined. Currently, there is no way to prevent it and no cure. Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills. In her heartfelt talk, Kim shares her family’s personal journey and how Glen’s farewell tour and film, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, began a national conversation about the effects of Alzheimer’s. It’s a remarkable story of the human spirit and how Kim and Glen made the decision to continue to live a very public life despite the challenges and adversity of this disease. It’s also a story of hope and how music helped Glen retain his mental well-being far longer than expected and demonstrated to the world that a life lived fully does not stop with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. Kim will leave you inspired and with a sense of hope.
