On tyquan Lewis’s mission:

“His great grandmother was diagnosed with Dementia Alzheimer’s and his mom was a social worker when he was growing up.

In high school and college he would routinely volunteer at places and would bring teammates to spend time with these people.”

On reading books to patients: 

“Yesterday he took sometime afternoon to read some books to patients who suffer from Dementia and Alzheimer’s. One of the books he read was a Tony Dungy book which was very fitting of course. He took questions and was just so genuine and signing autographs.”
