Omar Sharif: Alzheimer’s Disease | JAQUO Lifestyle Magazine
A New Face of Alzheimer’s Disease
Learning that Omar Sharif has Alzheimer’s, affects all of us, I imagine. As always, it is hard to see someone so strong and vital struck with the disease.
It’s true with our own loved ones too, isn’ it? We remember our parents or spouses as they were, however that might be. I often catch myself saying, “I wish you could have know mom when…” You can’t help it. She is adorable still today. She is happy and cheerful as she always was. But she used to be so much more.
We all have a little piece of Omar Sharif in our hearts, from Dr. Zhivago or another of his roles when acting.
I hope the announcement brings more attention to the disease and the need for treatment and a cure.
