Glen Campbell’s Daughter Urges Congress to Increase Funding for Alzheimer’s

Glen-Campbell-in-concert--007

Ashley Campbell, daughter of singer Glen Campbell, who has Alzheimer’s disease became tearful as she testified before Congress, urging increased support for research.

“I think a person’s life is comprised of memories, and that’s exactly what Alzheimer’s disease takes away from you,” noted Ashley.  “Now when I play banjo with my dad, it’s getting harder for him to follow along and it’s getting harder for him to recall my name.  It’s hard to come to the realization that someday my dad might look at me and I will be absolutely nothing to him.”
