I'm so excited to be back for my 4th season of BvB Dallas! A few years ago, Alzheimer's touched the life of one of my oldest and dearest friends, Karen Jones. Karen’s mom, Kathy Laney, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. She was only 56 at the time of her diagnosis. Karen and I cried together and I did my best to stay positive. After hearing the news, I knew I had to do whatever it took to support my friend and be strong for her so she could be strong for her mom and family. Now, Alzheimer's has touched my life as well. My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2017. Because of my involvement with BvB, I was able to find the right doctors for my grandmother and help my family through this difficult time.
I’m so proud to be a part of BvB Dallas to help raise money for research to develop effective treatments and, hopefully, a cure for Alzheimer’s. I play in honor of Kathy Laney, a woman I’ve known over half of my life, I play for her daughter, Karen Jones, who is one of the strongest women I know, I play for Karen's daughter, Vivian Rose, and I play for my grandmother, Ruby Harris.
