Allred is the author of many fiction and non-fiction sports book. With a background in sports (Allred was named to the first ever US women's bobsled team and made sports history when named 'Athlete of the Year' for her sport in bobsled in 1994 by the United States Olympic Commitee while also pregnant), Allred earned her Masters in kinesiology, with a special interest in the special needs population.
When Allred began posting #LifewithDementia on social media, the repsonse was almost instantaneous. "Hilarious," "Loyalty all the way!" "Dementia doesn't know what it is up against with this family," and "thank you for sharing this. You are helping us heal," became more common than not. In anticipation of the Operation Caregiver: #LifewithDementia, still more have weighed in.Alex Allred is the Midas of literature. Everything she writes about, no matter how serious it could be, turns to golden comedy! - Sylvia MillerThis should be on daily television! - Ashley Tunnell WilliamsonI'm waiting for the movie ... - Tiffany BrockIt's all in the way you look at it. Attitude is everything. And Allred has attitude! - Marsha RoseWhile there is nothing funny about dementia, Allred makes it both relatable and somehow tolerable. I found myself in hysterics sometimes reading some of the stories. Thanks for sharing. - Christene Spiezio
