SAN DIEGO - From NFL player, to stunt man, to Alzheimer's Advocate, San Diego's Quinn Early has lived a lot of lives.
In his current life, Quinn is a published author with a new book out, titled 'Bryant Acres'. Inspired by his own experience when a family member, his mother, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, Quinn's focus now is educating individuals about Alzheimer's, Dementia, and the importance of early detection of both diseases.
Quinn's mother Ann was his co-author of 'Bryant Acres,' before passing away in 2013.
'Bryant Acres' is also a family affair -- it's centered around Quinn’s great-grandfather, Sherrod Bryant, and the love story that unfolded seven generations back, during the time of slavery in the South.
At the height of slavery in the antebellum south, a free man of color sold himself into indentured servitude. He found love and went on to become one of the wealthiest land owners of the time. And in the process built a multi racial community.
Quinn’s mother was diagnosed with the disease as she was writing the book. In honor of his mother Ann, Quinn will donate the proceeds from the sale of 'Bryant Acres' to the Alzheimer’s association.
Quinn has three events coming up this month that you can be a part of:
