Mike McGuff's story
As a young man in my early 20s, and an only child, Mike was totally lost when my mother, Elizabeth McGuff, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 53. At the time a beloved 4th grade teacher at T.H. Rogers School, the shock of her sudden diagnosis forced my mother to leave her true calling as an educator. She died at age 58.
Now Mike is an Alzheimer's Association, Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter Board Member and the Alzheimer's Association Ambassador for Texas' 7th Congressional District, working to pass legislation that can help fight this terrible disease.
Dayna will be featured in Mike's upcoming Rock 101 KLOL documentary.
