These are the heart-warming reactions captured by a pregnant woman every time she tells her mum with Alzheimer’s that she is having a baby. Glowing mum-to-be Christine Stone decided to film her mum Setsuko Harmon’s replies each time she informed her of her pregnancy over four days.

Despite being afflicted with the memory destroying disease, the 77-year-old breaks into a huge grin and begins clapping with excitement whenever the news is broken. Invariably Setsuko asks her daughter when the baby is due before telling Christine, 38, ‘I’m so glad’ and giggling with joy.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most commonly occurring form of dementia, causing buildups of protein called plaque in the brain. This leads to severing of the connections between nerve cells, eventually leading to the death of nerve cells and loss of brain tissue.

The daughter posted this three-minute video compilation of her mother’s reaction to the same news, over and over again. She decided to post it because she loves how happy her mom is every time, but she also wants to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease.

This bitter sweet statement was caught on camera and it witnesses the sweetest reaction of the grandma-to-be, who is so thrilled to hear about having a grandchild, every single time!

Christine’s 77 year old mom, Setsuko Harmon, started showing signs of Alzheimer’s 8 years ago and has steadily grown worse since then. Fortunately, this wonderful woman has not lost her joy.
