Watch this mum-to-be tell her mum with Alzheimer's the news over and over

She's just as excited every time.

Christine Stone is pregnant and her family is obviously thrilled for her – especially her mum who hears the news over and over again and is just as excited every time.
You see, Setsuko Harmon has Alzheimer's disease so almost every time Christine goes over and visits, she needs to tell her mum she's expecting all over again – sometimes multiple times in one visit.
Christine filmed her mum's sweet reactions and put them together in one beautiful video that'll almost definitely make you cry.
"I've shared the news countless times ― too many to count," Stone told HuffPost. "It is sad yet heartwarming to see my mum's reaction every time. I cannot wait for her to meet our daughter when she arrives in October, obviously."
Also proves how nice her mum is, that even when she's super pregnant her mum doesn't notice the giant bump.
The mum-to-be said she made the video for her future daughter as well as the rest of her family.

"I wanted to have a video for my daughter to see how excited my mom was for her arrival and how she was loved by her," Stone told HuffPost. "I also thought it was adorable how my mom reacted every time."
Christine hopes the video will motivate people to donate and help find a cure for the disease or join in their local Walk to End Alzheimer's.
"I also hope people take time out of their schedule to spend time with their parents, because they won't be around forever."
Setsuko has already beaten breast cancer, only to be diagnosed with stage four colon cancer years later. While doctors only gave her six months to live, the fighter emerged cancer-free.

"At that time, because of her Alzheimer's, she didn't know she was sick," Christine told Today. "The Alzheimer's actually helped, along with prayer, and she just beat the cancer."
"When someone asks you the same question 20 times in a row, nonstop in an hour, it's hard not to get frustrated, but it's not their fault," she said. "I hope this video can help people trying to make the best out of a difficult situation. There's always something good that can come out of anything."
