Glen Campbell’s Daughter Testifies on the Hardships of Alzheimer’s

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Earlier this week, Glen Campbell‘s daughter gave a moving speech describing the hardships of Alzheimer’s disease in Washington D.C. .

“It think a person’s life is comprised of memories, and that’s exactly what this disease takes away from you,” Ashley Campbell began tearily. “Like a memory of my dad taking me fishing in Flagstaff when I was a little girl, or playing banjo with my dad while he plays guitar. 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 watching such a talented person lose so much from this disease, but I imagine it’s a whole lot harder watching your father lose his memories of his family.
