Gene Wilder

Next Avenue wrote an article about the recent death of actor Gene Wilder. Best known for his roles in such movie as Willoe Wonka, Blazing Sadles and Young Frankstien. The articles main focus was on why he chose to keep his diagnoses a secret to his fans. In this day in age when people are tweeting, taking selfies in the name of vanity, it is rare to see a celebrity put fans before themselves. 

The rest of the article focused on why people may not feel comfortable talking about Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s is a sad thing to have but hopefully by raising awareness people will help fund research and be willing to come forward to get treatment.
