On May 14, 1987, my mother, Rita Hayworth, died. The cause of death was Alzheimer's Disease. I recall how utterly lost and confused I felt when I first heard the name, Alzheimer's Disease. I had no idea what Alzheimer's was or what to expect. During the next seven years, I found out. Shortly after the diagnosis, I was introduced to the Alzheimer's Association by some dear friends. It is an organization founded by the families of Alzheimer's patients. The knowledge and help I received from the association ``family'' during the years my mother was ill were invaluable.

The Alzheimer's Association put on a party there that had something for absolutely everyone. And let me tell you, this was not just another group of the swells dancing for disease. This was better than just lifestyles of the rich and famous. And if you had any doubts, all you had to do was ask Robin Leach, or any other of the many celebrity guests, including Alan * King, Jane Seymour, Ben E. King and Princess Yasmin Aga Khan. Sugar Rautbord and Elizabeth Drey co-chaired the gala.

A NOBLE'S CALLING-1989

Sitting comfortably in his office in the immaculate villa that houses his Bellerive Foundation in Geneva, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan hardly looks like a man who has taken as his personal agenda many of the world's most pressing problems. The erstwhile townhouse, from which he has directed his various personal philanthropies since 1977, is a grand confection of turn-of-the -century architecture clearly intended, inside and out, to facilitate to the fullest its original owners' enjoyment of their comfortable existence.
