Glen Campbell - Campbell's Wife 'Savouring' Every Moment As He Battles Alzheimer's

Glen Campbell's wife refuses to think about the progression of the veteran singer's Alzheimer's disease, because it upsets her too much.
The Rhinestone Cowboy hitmaker announced in June (11) that he is suffering from the degenerative neurological disorder.
He is staging a string of farewell shows in Britain and the U.S., culminating in his final performance in February (12), which will mark his retirement from the stage.
Campbell's wife Kim is accompanying him on the tour, but admits she is struggling to deal with her husband's diagnosis.
She tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "It's sad and depressing to think about the future. We're not at a severe stage yet, but this thing always progresses.
"I try not to focus on that. I try to focus on making each day as happy as we can. We savour every experience with him, while we still have him."
