Actor Seth Rogen Speaks About Alzheimer’s Disease [VIDEO]
Rogen, began dating his now wife about 9 years ago. Her mother, Adele was 54 at the time and that’s when they started to notice a few things changing about her. By the time she was 55 she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. (This came to little surprise as both of his wife’s parents had been diagnosed with the disease.) She forgot mostly everything by the time she was 60 years old.
He spoke about his experience and how little knowledge he actually knew of the disease at first. Thinking as most of us ‘think’, it is only really elder people who get Alzheimer’s. He states how people should be better educated on the matter. Rogen also mentioned the organization Hilarity for Charity to help spread awareness. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the disease and it is the most costly condition out there.
He wants people to know that they are not alone when dealing with a loved one who has been diagnosed with the disease. It’s not something to be ashamed of or something that should be whispered.
Check out his very well written speech.
