Full series: Bill Lyon chronicles his battle with Alzheimer's

Retired Inquirer sports columnist Bill Lyon raises his fist during the Bill Lyon Alzheimer's Awareness Night at Citizens Bank Park.

Former Inquirer sports columnist Bill Lyon has been chronicling his fight with Alzheimer's disease.

The series this summer has detailed his life with the disease since he was diagnosed three years ago.

"My hope is that the columns will be cathartic and perhaps be of some help to anyone else who's going down this same long and winding road. Let's gang up on Al," Lyon wrote in the first piece. "My intent is to write until . . . well, until I can't."

Here are links to the series and related coverage.
