Eventide Foundation is pleased to announce our speaker for the upcoming Leaders in Living event is Kim Campbell, widow of Glen Campbell! It’s the 5 year anniversary of Leaders in Living and the first year featured a viewing of Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me at the Fargo Theatre.
Kim Campbell’s marriage of more than three decades to pop-country music legend Glen Campbell is a testament to devotion and overcoming adversity. Kim helped Glen beat cocaine addiction and alcoholism only to face their greatest challenge when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. Kim supported her husband through the tumultuous hardships that accompany the disease and has become a tireless, influential voice for all people living with Alzheimer’s. In 2011, Kim, Glen and their children went public to courageously share Glen’s battle with Alzheimer’s. They invited filmmakers James Keach and Trevor Albert to document Glen’s Goodbye Tour, which produced the award winning documentary Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me. The documentary helped to break the stigma that accompanies Alzheimer’s and provides hope and comfort to families who are facing the same challenges.
