2013 Courage & Hope Caregiver Award Winner
Ken’s mother, Dorothy, had Alzheimer’s. In order to give Dorothy the care she needed, Ken quit his job to be her at-home caregiver. Ken lovingly cared for her mother through a complete role reversal of child and parent until her passing in March of 2012. Ken has since dedicated himself to supporting other caregivers and raising crucial awareness and funds to one day find a cure for the disease that robbed him of his mother.
