Bobby Womack, soul singing legend, has been diagnosed with early Alzheimer's!
Oh no! That's so sad.
We previously mentioned that Womack had just survived colon cancer and some pretty bad pneumonia.
It's only the very beginning but the dementia can rapidly progress and get much worse in a short amount of time.

David Krumholtz, most recognizable from Harold and Kumar, was recently spotted at an event in Century City in El Lay.
He was at the Walk To End Alzheimer's!
It was a charity event where people walk to end Alzheimer's disease! Duh! LOLz!
The Alzheimer's walk's website said:

Yay for science!
Researchers found that a skin cancer treatment cured Alzheimer's disease in mice VERY quickly!
In a study by Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, researchers gave mega doses of bexarotene to Alzheimer's stricken mice. Within 72 hours, the mice's memory improved and half of the amyloid plaque was gone.
The scientists are quick to point that it is mice, not humans, they're dealing with.
But there is good news; since bexarotene is already FDA approved, the next phase can happen sooner than if it was a new drug.
The next phase includes testing on healthy and cancer stricken patients.
Let's hope the success continues!
