“I am using my brain everyday to care for and to advocate for my mother who is living with Alzheimer’s. I want to ensure that she and others like her have the best quality of life possible despite the disease. Caring for my mother has inspired me to speak out and to work with the Alzheimer’s Association to bring greater awareness and understanding of the disease. I will use my brain to continue to educate myself and others on what we can do to help those and their families living with this terrible disease.”
