Editor's Viewpoint: Back our stars' gig
Alzheimer's Disease is a cruel, degenerative condition often leaving sufferers strangers to their nearest and dearest. Only those who have witnessed someone succumb to the condition can truly testify just how painful the experience is.
Two of our most talented music stars, Tim Wheeler of Ash, whose father died from the condition recently, and Neil Hannon, whose father current has Alzheimer's, are taking part in a concert in Belfast next month to highlight the condition. They deserve huge support for the gig - one which probably means more to them than any other they have ever played.
