How One Man’s Love for His Mom Went Viral

How One Man’s Love for His Mom Went Viral Image

This week, a video posted by Reddit user Joe Fraley went viral, giving us a rare and touching look into a family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

In the video, Joe is singing a song to his mother with Alzheimer’s, but his post explained that he can no longer play for her because she doesn’t recognize him anymore. The story itself is sad for us to hear, but the way the video has spread online is truly inspiring. Although doctors and researchers continue to fight against the disease and seek treatments, it sometimes feels like the best we can do as a community is wait helplessly. This video proves otherwise.

Building awareness, sharing stories and making connections is the one way that we can all fight back against Alzheimer’s, and the video by Joe is a great example of this. Its reception online and the thousands of comments that have poured in are making a lasting impact, and against a disease that can ravage the human mind, creating memories and emotional experiences is the perfect way to fight back.

If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out Joe’s video below, and learn more about his story here.
