The Hickey Family designed this brain to help illustrate the complex emotions that surround the devastation of dementia. The Hickey Family Brain attempts to capture a few of those emotions – confusion, anxiety, anger, frustration, fixation.
It is the family’s belief that focusing on the importance of brain health, along with the proper research and funding, can help transform these difficult feelings to those of hope and most importantly, peace.
