LEARN ABOUT A MOVIE IN THE MAKING
My name is Erich Hover and I am an actor. I worked alongside Brad Pitt in the film “Moneyball” and I’m the middle son of Ed who is stricken with Frontotemporal Dementia. This movie is going to tell my father’s story and my goal is that it will become a vehicle to raise awareness about the disease and provide funding from it’s viewership to help support a cure. 10% of the profits of the film will be donated to Dementia/Alzheimer’s research.
