R&B legend Bobby Womack is battling early stage-Alzheimer’s disease, the Sun newspaper reports. He had reportedly been struggling to remember names and song titles in recent months when he was informed by doctors that he was howing the first symptoms of the degenerative illness.
Bobby Womack told the Sun, “The doctor says there are signs of Alzheimer’s. It’s not bad yet but will get worse. How can I not remember songs I wrote? It’s frustrating. I don’t feel together yet. Negative things come in my mind and it’s hard for me to remember sometimes.”
The soul legend battled colon cancer last year. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bobby Womack!
