Last week, a "Find The Good" reader tipped me to the Alzheimer's Association "Who Wears Purple Best?" campaign, to raise awareness of the disease's growing prevalence. Eight celebrity "Alzheimer's Champions" competed, but when the winner was announced today, it was no competition: Soleil Moon Frye took the title with more than 51% of votes cast. Terrell Owens of the NFL's Buffalo Bills was second, followed by "Frasier" funnyman and longtime Alzheimer's activist David Hyde Pierce, Seth Rogen, Bradley Cooper, Melina Kanakaredes, Natalie Morales, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
One person develops this devastating disease every 70 seconds. Kudos to Frye and the other celebs for helping spread the word.
