Tommy was diagnosed with dementia at the age of 58 and has since worked to raise awareness about young-onset dementia and Alzheimer's.

"Communication is a very important segment of every person’s life, we use it to actively participate in society."

In his role as MedicAlert Ambassador, he is dedicated to showing that 'It’s not the end of your life - it's the start of a new life'.
