The Bob & Diane Fund’s goal is to bring visual understanding and dialogue to a disease that has been in the shadows for far too long. As a daughter of an Alzheimer’s parent, I believe that visual storytelling can be a powerful way to advocate for increased public and private research and spending needed to find a cure.
I created this award in honor of my parents. My hope is for people to understand that Alzheimer’s is more than just memory loss and to recognize the heavy toll it takes on the caregiver and family. My parents taught me the importance of giving, and this is my gift to them.
