"You have to realise that the whole of you isn't the illness. I am not Alzheimer's. I am myself."

In the middle of 2014, Anne Deveson, AO, AM, author, broadcaster, filmmaker, mental health advocate, doctoral student at 80 and one of Australia's national treasures, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. 

You can read more about Anne and how she's facing the diagnosis in her interview with Fenella Souter, which featured in The Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Weekend.
