Woman’s Alzheimer’s Disease Proves Strength in Marriage
Pam White was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2009. Her son, Banker White, captured her story in a touching New York Times video and article in 2014 – two years before her passing. Upon finding out her condition, she initially felt “upset” and “distressed,” but quickly came to realize that carrying Alzheimer’s didn’t change much except proving her fierce commitment to her marriage and children.
“I don’t feel regret,” she says in the video. “I feel blessed that I have this wonderful family and a husband who is extraordinarily wonderful.”
