Artist Statement: We are all in this together. There is no one who is unscathed by the devastations of Alzheimer's. Given the opportunity to help, the honor is mine. May this small quilt provide links to a cure, that brings compassionate relief to millions. Plus, it was fun to make!

Dedication: For cousin Paul Leong, the devoted, loving caregiver, and his wife, Jane Forester-Leong, of Honolulu, Hawaii. Paul kisses Jane a hundred times a day. When she got sick with Alzheimers ten years ago, he promised the daily dose of one hundred kisses, because it makes her happy. He does not forget. My aloha to Jane and Paul.
