A few years ago, Alzheimer's touched the life of one of my oldest and dearest friends, Karen Jones. Karen’s mom, Kathy Laney, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. She was only 56 at the time of her diagnosis. Karen and I cried together and I did my best to stay positive. After hearing the news, 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 disease in 2017. Because of my involvement with BvB Dallas, I was able to find the right doctors for my grandmother and help my family through this difficult time.

This year, I'm serving on the Board of Directors for BvB Dallas. I'm so excited for this new opportunity and to be back for my 6th season to help raise money for research to develop effective treatments and, hopefully, a cure for Alzheimer's.

I continue to be involved with BvB Dallas in honor of Kathy Laney, a woman I’ve known over half of my life,  for her daughter, Karen Jones, who is one of the strongest women I know, and for my grandmother, Ruby Harris.

Story

BvB Dallas is a non-profit organization that brings young-professionals together to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s disease research and support organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Founded in 2008 by a group of young-professional women, BvB Dallas was created as a way to honor and remember loved ones who have suffered from Alzheimer’s and related diseases. Each year the organization hosts a variety of fundraising and educational events as a way for Dallas philanthropists to help eradicate this grave disease, culminating in its flagship event – a powder-puff football game between The Pink Team and The Blue Team.
