Larry King wasn’t gone for long. On May 1st, CNN will present A Larry King Special – Unthinkable: the Alzheimer’s Epidemic.
Alzheimer's is said to be the sixth-leading cause of death across all ages in the US and will be talked about in depth during the one hour special.
And joining Larry will be some notable names such as the former First Lady Laura Bush and California’s former First Lady and Alzheimer’s activist Maria Shriver.
Ronald Reagan’s son, Ron Reagan will also chat with Larry as well as Seth Rogen and Angie Dickinson.
Turns out Rogen is dealing with the issue after his fiancee’s mother was diagnosed with the disease at just 55-years-old. Rogen reveals:
“More and more people in our generation are gonna have to deal with it. We’re dealing with it before most people have to. But as you get older and you see it happening to your parents, and ultimately realize it could happen to yourself and your friends, it becomes much more real and not some imaginary old person problem, you know?”
Sad, but true!
Will U be tuning in this Sunday?
