Terrell Owens tackles a totally different big issue - Alzheimer's

He might be remembered as being one of the best wide receivers of the 2000's or as the star of Vh1's "The TO Show" but what NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens wants to be remembered as, is an advocate for Alzheimer's awareness.

Owens's grandmother, Alice, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 1996 and since then Owens has been a vocal supporter of awareness.

One in eight people aged 65 and older (13%) have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to rise in the future. Terrell Owens talks about his cause with T.J. Holmes and Kiran Chetry.

    Even if it is just for the image I'm glad he's doing what he's doing. Regardless of how many people hate on him not many people will have the same positive impact on the world that he has had with all of his work with alzheimers regardless of what goes on when he's playing football.
