Artist Statement: I have cared for my mother with the help of my father and my four younger brothers for the past 8 years in our childhood home on our little island in Alaska. When we found out that social services couldn't help us, or her, we made up our minds to never give up and to do it all ourselves. Each and every day, we hope for a better day for her, as well as for each of us. And we hope, and we pray for a cure...always, always, hope springs eternally for a cure for this terrible, debilitating disease.
