Three years into their marriage, Judith Fox's husband, Dr Edmund Ackell, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Over the next 10 years, she watched as the man who used to perform surgery, fly planes and run universities forgot how to make a phone call or what she had told him two minutes before. A poignant and beautiful portrait, this book puts a human face to the statistics, exploring the disease through Fox's intimate photographs and poetic writing. While the details of I Still Do are personal and unique, this candid story of illness, aging and love is universal.
