Quote about Alzheimer's Project: 

                “My dad, Ron Cantley, had Alzheimer’s disease, and my mother, Donna, was his full-time caregiver. I have seen firsthand the experiences and struggles caregivers and families face. I work with Alzheimer’s Project because I want to ensure other families have the support they need and that they know they don’t have to face this disease on their own.”
