RALEIGH – Her family has always called eighty one year old Lois Shoolbred, Lo Lo.  For most of her life she was a charismatic career woman who worked in television and traveled the world organizing star-studded events with celebrities like Tony Bennett and Robert Plant.  Now Lo Lo is being ravished by Alzheimer’s, an irreversible, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills.  A new WRAL documentary offers a rare, intimate portrait of a family struggling with Alheimer’s. “Lo Lo” airs Thursday, June 16 at 7:00pm on WRAL-TV.

Lo Lo’s son, Dave Simpson invited WRAL News reporter Cullen Browder into his world to see the impact of Alzheimer’s on his mother and the rest of his family.  WRAL spent hours capturing intimate moments with Lo Lo and the Simpson’s.  The documentary shows the sadness of Lo Lo forgetting her own family members’ names, rambling incoherently and becoming confused, angry and agitated.  It also reveals her family’s courage as they accept the consequences of this insidious disease and embrace Lo Lo’s struggle with laughter and love.
