The Bills receiver will receive the first-ever Young Champions Award for raising Alzheimer’s Disease awareness from the Alzheimer’s Association, the Associated Press reported today. Owens, whose grandmother has Alzheimer’s, has served as a spokesman for the Association’s Young Champions campaign, and has testified before Senate subcommittees to advocate additional funding for Alzheimer’s research.   He said today in a statement that “Alzheimer’s has affected my own family, so I understand firsthand the impact of this disease.
