The Importance of Global's work

Very important, because of the discoveries that will occur involving soft tissue cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. I speak all the time about how far we have come in just one generation. Can you imagine where we will go in the next? In one generation we have gone from being placed in an institution to being invited to the White House. Maybe, in the next generation, we will go from an invitation to the White House to an election to the White House. It never hurts to Dream Big!

– Frank Stephens, Actor, Special Olympian, Advocate
