Helen’s Story

Helen, Jackie's beloved wife of 59 years, was his stopwatch.

The love of his life with a razor-sharp mind that timed his laps to the millisecond with unfaltering accuracy.

In 2014 Helen was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. Today, Helen’s short-term memory is fading and dementia is taking hold of her mind and body. This terrible condition is devastating the Stewart family, as it does for millions of families living with dementia around the world.
