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 Sargent Shriver, who died of Alzheimer's, but more fondly remembered and honored as the Founding Director of the Peace Corps, in which I served, as both volunteer (Malaysia & Solomon Islands) and staff.
