The progression of Alzheimer’s is a long and often lonely road, and Troy Whitton's wife has been travelling it for the past 12 years.

So, Troy is on a mission to help save others. The question was how.

That is where Dawn Ackerman came in.

A sign maker, she had worked with Troy on fun projects before, so she offered to help create a moving billboard for his cause.

Troy's van is now wrapped with a current picture of him and his wife, Theta.

And he says the van is already having an impact raising awareness.
