Jack Hanna no longer recognizes loved ones due to Alzheimer's disease

Beloved zoo keeper and TV animal expert Jack Hanna is now living with advanced Alzheimer's disease, his family said recently.

They also revealed that he no longer recognized his most loved ones.

They said his condition had progressed much more rapidly in recent months than they could have anticipated.

Hanna retires from public life in 2021.

He now spends time at home with his wife Suzy in Bigfork, Montana.

Hannah's family say they are sharing their stories because they want others battling Alzheimer's to know they are not alone.
