Glen Campbell Documentary Shares Alzheimer's Journey

February 9, 2015

Alzheimer's Disease
has been steadily encroaching into singer, songwriter Glen Campbell's life. Instead of retreating to deal with the challenges privately, Glen and his family decided to share their struggle with documentary filmmakers. The production called Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me by PCH Films, includes both heartwarming and candidly frank moments Mr. Campbell experienced during his visits to Mayo Clinic for care.

Ronald Petersen, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Mayo Clinic Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, praised the Campbell family for their determination to raise awareness about the condition's impact on patients, as well as their caregivers. [TRT 4:20]

*Special note: Glen Campbell and Julian Raymond won the Best Country Song Grammy Award for Glen's final song, "I'm Not Gonna Miss You," from the Academy nominated documentary, Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.
