Show your love to a Hometown Hero!
Legendary, retired Philadelphia Inquirer sports writer, Bill Lyon has courageously shared his personal struggle with "Al," what he calls the Alzheimer's disease that monopolizes his life. Through it all, he's raised awareness about the disease in a series of special guest columns published in his former newspaper. In them he describes the daily routines, and the new "fights" he has with Al incorporating just the right dose of self-deprecating humor, at the right time.
Because he dared to lay it all out on the table, the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association has honored Bill Lyon with its 2017 Most Courageous Person award, and the Alzheimer's Association has established the Bill Lyon MVP Fund in his honor.
