“My mother was diagnosed with (genetic) Early Onset Alzheimer's in 2007. With the general thought from her doctors that she most likely had symptoms for the past 20 years…a majority of my young adult life,” said Stepheni Norton, owner of Arts ‘n Drafts. “Muse n' Brew is a perfect depiction of us, the California crew of the Norton family. We all know life is tough; others might throw the kids away and the towel in. But look around, we are blessed enough to have the sun, the sand and each other. So we found inspiration in the diseases, the deployments, and the kids others called 'defective'....then hosted a party to celebrate it all.”
