Harry Urban’s thoughts regarding Richard Taylor PhD:
Stay true to yourself and don’t get caught in the headlights of fame. Remember who you are and that you have Alzheimer’s and leave a mark for others living this disease. I was given this advice some years ago and try my best to follow it. This was a conversation I had one day with Richard Taylor.
He saw something in me that I never did. He taught me to Stand Up and Speak Out about my Alzheimer’s. He made me realize that I have a duty to help educate the world in living with Alzheimer’s and make others understand what we go through every day of our lives.
Don’t look for a reward because there is no reward in helping others living with dementia. When I was lost in my disease, I read a book written by Richard that changed my life. I was no longer bitter at the world and found my passion in life. I had several private conversations with Richard and webcast that planted my feet to the earth. I will never forget the teaching from Richard and promise to never give up and continue on with my passion.
