Susan spoke out about what fans can expect from the upcoming film...

"Armed with the name of a brain disease I’d never heard of, I set out on a mission to understand it, and that led me down my unchosen path of advocacy," she explained in a statement.

She continued:

"With invaluable help from leading medical experts, I saw that what Robin and I had gone through, finally made sense — our experience matched up with the science. And what I discovered along the way was bigger than me, and bigger than Robin. The full story was revealed during the making of this film and it holds the truth that Robin and I had been searching for."

It must have been unbelievably hard in the final few months for both Robin and Susan...

And now, Susan has spoken out about just how difficult things became as a married couple.

She recently appeared on an episode of Today to discuss the documentary in further depth...

And she disclosed the personal fact that she and her husband were ordered by doctors to sleep in separate beds just months before his death.

She said the measure was put in place to help Robin cope with his insomnia that was triggered by his dementia.

"He said to me, 'Does this mean we're separated?'" she recalled. "That was a really shocking moment. When your best friend, your partner, your love - you realize that there's a giant chasm somewhere, and you can't see where it is but that's just not based in reality. That was a hard moment."

She went on:

"Robin was right when he said to me, 'I just want to reboot my brain.' In that moment, I promised him that we would get to the bottom of this. I just didn't know that would be after he passed." Utterly heartbreaking.
