Some of you who follow me on Facebook know that I spent lots of time enjoying my Mom's sense of humor and calm spirit before she died of Alzheimer's earlier this year.
I know first hand that those diagnosed with dementia can continue to live a meaningful life full of loving relationships. I actually grew closer to my Mom during the years she lived with Alzheimer's.
That's why I was excited when the folks at the Dementia Spotlight Foundation, whose mission is to help families see past a dementia diagnosis, called to ask me to photograph their fundraiser showcasing Jack McBrayer of 30 Rock.
Robin Andrews, one of the co-founders of the foundation, attended high school with McBrayer, who was happy to help raise money for the cause.
Improv comedians from around the southeast joined McBrayer in a series of hilarious skits.
Also present, to help spread the good news that people diagnosed with dementia can continue to live a fulfilling life, were three men living with dementia. One offered a tip for jogging one's memory. Take a selfie.
Members of the audience joined in on the fun.
