“The more we learned about Alzheimer’s, the more we wanted to shine a light on it and the more we became aware of the potential of this movie to be a catalyst for change.” -- Kim Campbell

Alzheimer's Reading Room
I just finished reading an excellent article in the New York Times about Glen Campbell. The article is about Glen and the movie, I'll Be Me.
Dr. Ronald C. Petersen of the Mayo Clinic, who diagnosed Mr. Campbell’s disease and is also chairman of a national Alzheimer’s advisory council says in the article,
“One of our biggest struggles is still getting people to acknowledge this disease,” he added. “So we need to embrace this and say he didn’t do anything wrong in his life to bring this on, that this can happen to virtually anyone.”The author notes that the film is starting to get some Oscar's buzz.
