Today’s Person of Inspiration

In 2004 I was working for a company that organised and ran conferences and conventions. We ran the Registration Secretariat for the 2004 Alzheimer’s Disease International in Kyoto, Japan, and one of the keynote speakers was Christine Bryden, who at age 46 was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 1995. I have never forgotten meeting her, or the keynote she gave. The whole room was in tears by the end, and the woman who was simultaneously interpreting for her was sobbing. Recently Christine was featured on Australian Story, and I strongly encourage everyone to find 30mins to sit down and watch this episode.
