A Letter from Paul
I was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s in 2013.
It’s shocking how many people this devastating disease affects. If you don’t have a family member who has been diagnosed, odds are you probably know someone who does.
I’ve found that because many people are frightened by the disease, they’re understandably unsure what to say or do when they’re around me.
What would be best for all of us is for you to please, just be yourself and treat me as you always have. I’m still here, and as Clark Terry famously said, “I keep on keepin’ on.”
I’m so blessed to have a wonderful, loving family and supportive friends.
I practice yoga six days a week and stay connected to music through a wonderful organization called Music Mends Minds. It is a non-profit that supports people with neurological diseases through music.
I’m asking friends and family to support Music Mends Minds - a great organization that helps me and thousands of others with any kind of cognitive impairment to enjoy a better quality of life through the power of music.
While we await a cure this is an immediate way for people to be engaged and, literally, to “come to life.” People who can’t speak or reason can and do sing and play. The music is truly transformative!
Your contribution will be put to work immediately as bands continue to form around the world.
Thank you -
Love to all –
