I am a filmmaker from Alabama and specialize in commercial production and documentary story telling. My mother's experience with her mother's Alzheimer's inspired me to capture this story while we still had time. My grandmother has since passed, but my mother takes this film with her to presentations around the United States where she teaches and advocates for Alzheimer's research.
