Toni Wombaker

Toni Wombaker of Pahrump, Nevada, has a background in education and is a mother of four. She also has cared for her mother, Yvonne Jensen, 71, who has had Alzheimer’s disease since 2009. “When my mom came to live with us, I didn’t realize what this disease was really like, but it didn’t take long to learn,” she said. After seeing Cure Alzheimer’s Fund advocate Alan Arnette speak, Toni was inspired to start video documenting her mom to educate others. Last October Toni held an event and showed her latest film, “The Seven Stages of Alzheimer’s Through a Caregiver’s Eyes,” collecting more than $100 for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.
