Nearly 50 million people worldwide have dementia. Their stories deserve to be told, even if they can no longer tell them themselves. HFC’s annual storytelling contest – Humans of Dementia – engages young people across the U.S. to share the stories of people with Alzheimer’s and Dementia who have touched their lives. The contest invites high school and college students to submit written profiles and/or photo entries that profile a loved one or someone they know who had or who is living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. This contest sheds light on a dark disease by telling the beautiful stories of people whose lives are not defined by the disease. By bringing these stories out from the shadows, together we remove the shame and stigma often surrounding an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
