I'm so excited to be back for my 3rd season of BvB Dallas! A few years ago, Alzheimer's touched the life of one of my oldest and dearest friends. Karen was taking her mom to the doctor to get some answers. Kathy had not been acting like her usual bubbly self for a while and her family was concerned. Karen had her suspicions about the cause, but we all thought – there’s no way, Kathy is too young for this. I will never forget the phone call I got from Karen confirming our fears. Kathy had early onset Alzheimer’s. She was only 56 at the time of her diagnosis. We cried together and I did my best to stay positive. As I hung up the phone that day, 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 this past fall. Because of my involvement with BvB, I was able to find the right doctors for my grandmother and to 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 now I play for my grandmother, Ruby Harris.
