Until today, these kids had never met anyone with Alzheimer's. They had no prior knowledge of the disease, or how it affects someone's life. Just listen to their reactions, questions, and sweet words of encouragement as they talk to this woman.
She does a truly wonderful job explaining the disease so that the kids can understand it - heck, even I learned some new things about the disease! The most touching moment is when the kids start to realize just how serious the disease is, and a few of them start to cry. Children are known for their heightened sense of empathy, and it's on full display here.
Here's hoping that one day, this disease will be cured.
