Artist Statement: My sister has Alzheimer's disease and has recently moved to an Alzheimer's unit. Trying to help her over the past years has made me keenly aware of the damage of this disease both for the person affected and for those who love her. I made this quilt because it is something I can do to contribute to research on Alzheimer's disease.
