Remembering

Around 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, which slowly attacks cognition, robbing patients of a lifetime of memories.

YouTube channel WatchCut Video recently sat down with several older adults, ages 49 to 75, who have been diagnosed with the disease, to ask them to share some of their most important memories.

From their earliest remembrances of being wonderstruck children, to first kisses, to their most recent recollections, they reveal what they can.

While they sometimes struggle to recall certain things, it’s the most powerful memories that seem to stick. And in a most emotional revelation, they share what they hope they will never forget. For one woman it’s her children; for one man it’s his marriage.

Just proves that while the debilitating disease can rob patients of their memories, it hopefully can never erase true love.
