This is Youtuber Joe Fraley, and his mother has Alzheimer’s disease. Last year he went viral after posting a video of him singing to her, and now he’s back with a new one.

The devoted son and talented musician posted a new video up yesterday after visiting his mum – who has recently been deteriorating – in her hospice. The video description reads:


My Mom’s health has been deteriorating at an incredibly rapid rate and was put on hospice care a few weeks ago. She hasn’t eaten in almost three months, she’s been non responsive, comatose and it seemed as if we could lose her at any moment.

My Dad and I went to see her yesterday and she had more life in her than I’ve seen in ages. I played her a new song I’ve been working on and her reaction made me really happy. I thought I’d share. Alzheimer’s is an odd disease, it’s amazing how much things can go up and down.

Alzheimer’s is a horrible disease and incredibly hard to deal with. It’s amazing watching Joe making the best of a bad situation.


It can sometimes very difficult to get through to someone suffering from the disease so severely, so seeing his mother being so responsive must be extremely rewarding.

Hats off, Joe!
