in trying to use this link, I got to the web site. then must go over to the right hand side and click on "Helga speaks.." hope this works for you as I found her 27 min talk very inspiring.

 Thank you for finding this David.She certainly speaks well and is even funny at times.  Wish everyone could retain their sense of humour like she has.

thank you sue for you comment.   my concern due to diagnosis of cvd is that I am going to end up somewhere in the dementia world(if I am not already there already(lol)).  and I find that people such as her are truly inspiring in their acceptance of a condition that in my previous life I would have considered the ultimate nightmare.  no longer. it is simply part of life and able to be accepted as a part of life.  we should have got a better warrentee package when we entered, but I don't recall any options being presented to me.  and as you mentioned her ability to laugh, and we can laugh with her also.
