“There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside of you.”
To Whom I May Concern® is...
an interactive theater program that gives voice to people who have recently been diagnosed with a progressive brain illness such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Using their own words and TWIMC’s scripting technique, these individuals share their stories and experiences before live and online audiences.
“I strongly recommend To Whom I May Concern to every community! So important to overcome the fear factor of diagnosis and the inability to discuss. We need the tools [to help us] discuss.”
Script in hand, people with dementia perform before a live audience, offering them an opportunity to talk about their lived experience of dementia, and the audience an unequaled chance to learn.
Ideal for people in isolated situations, TWIMC Online offers connection with other people with dementia who share similar experiences, and the opportunity to create a video that educates people around the world.
This Is My Voice
This Is My Voice goes beyond the signs and symptoms of disease and reminds us that people with dementia are alive and eager to stay active in their own lives and the lives of their loved ones, as long as they are able.
“A diagnosis of dementia can be very lonely. To Whom I May Concern® gives people with dementia a voice and a sense of being part of something bigger, a chance to belong during a time when one feels adrift.”
