Forget Me Not - A Play About Alzheimer's Disease

Feb 11, 2017

This week on The Local Take I speak with Garrett Davis about his play Forget Me Not. 

Garrett shares with us that his grandmother, Goodness Davis is the inspiration for the play. He shares the heartbreaking moment when he returned home from college and his grandmother didn't know who he was. As the oldest of over 20 grandchildren he was devastated.  As a playwright, he decided to use his craft to not only share the story, but to also bring in medical experts to provide information for the audience.  

Last month I sat down with B. Smith, model, restaurateur and lifestyle maven along with her husband and business partner Dan Gasby to discuss their New York Times bestselling book Before I Forget Love, Hope, Help and Acceptance in Our Fight Against Alzheimer's.  The couple shares their focus on increasing awareness regarding the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.
