Terry Pratchett

Recently the author Terry Pratchett, author of the Discworld series, was diagnosed with a form of Alzheimer's. I don't know what makes his unique, but he says that if you have to have Alzheimer's then this is the kind to have.

He recently gave $1,000,000 for research into a cure. When giving the money he also gave a speech. You can hear it below.

t's sad that someone so brilliant and clever like Terry Pratchett would have Alzheimer's. He's still a great writer, however. He still has the same wits to make the amazing Discworld novels. And that shows that he hasn't given up his own art of living, at all.
