“I watched Alzheimer’s rob my grandma for 10 years before it took her life while she was in my arms on February 24, 2012. I was her primary care taker. Through the healing part of grieving, I decided to give back in several areas. Today I take free portraits of Alzheimer’s patients and share their stories along with a blog. I have created the annual purple dignity dinner to raise money for Alzheimer’s in Reno, Nevada www.purpledignity.com
