Last month I wrote a post about Seth Rogen’s speech at a Senate hearing on Alzheimer’s Research. He talked about how he and his family has been personally affected by Alzheimer’s disease and the need for more research and funding to work towards a cure. Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects your memory and thinking, and as it progresses people have a harder time even recoginzing their closest families. Both my parents have a grandparent who suffered from Alzheimer’s, and the disease mostly affects the elderly.
If you ever wanted to see the power of animals – especially dogs – watch the video below. A woman named Lisa filmed her dad who has lost most of his speech because of Alzheimer’s. But when Lisa’s dog comes into the room, her dad changes in a way that will really make you stop and think, and maybe cry a bit. I did.
