THE STORY:

I'm so excited to be participating in my first 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. I was living in Corpus Christi at the time, so I could only comfort Karen over the phone. 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 that I’m back in the DFW area, 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 and I play for her daughter, Karen Jones, who is one of the strongest women I know. Karen has been able to get pieces of her mother back, but that is not enough. We can do better.

With a $25 donation, you will receive a ticket to the big game and a chance to help and ultimately find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Thank you so much for your love, support, and generosity! Go Team Blonde!
