“I’m here in addition to the amazing news that Jonah Jenkins made earlier on the ‘Today’ show with AARP [formerly American Association of Retired Persons] that they are making a $60 million investment into further research,” the actress said regarding the brain diseases.

The Emmy-nominee and Tony Award-winner shared the story of her father, who suffered long-term dementia before his passing.

“I lost my father to dementia and he had almost a 10 year battle with it because he was diagnosed with earlier onset dementia,” she revealed. “I’m hoping today that I can talk about my experience that will hopefully help other people feel that are going through the same thing and maybe relieve them a little of the heartache that it is to watch a family member suffer from this disease.”
