My first response to being asked to be in the Ms. Senior Alabama was “no”. I’m so happy I changed my mind! This pageant is about serving others and supporting other women in a positive manner. I have a network of Christian sisters supporting me with prayer and encouraging words. I’ll take that each and every day of my life.
Being Ms Senior Alabama gives me an opportunity to bring awareness to ALS and raise funds in hope of finding a cure and help families cope with the challenges daily life. I also educate others about the hospice benefit that will help enhance the quality of life for those with a terminal disease.

Tammy works for Comfort Care Hospice and Home Health as Community Liaison. She is very passionate about educating others about the hospice benefit. When her Daddy was diagnosed with ALS in July 2000, hospice was never mentioned to the family. Tammy says it certainly would have helped her Daddy’s quality of life as well as her mother , his caregiver. Tammy says, “Everybody needs to know about the hospice benefit”. That’s why Tammy will be educating the public about hospice during her year as Ms Senior Alabama.
Unfortunately, Tammy’s brother-in-law was diagnosed with ALS in July 2021. “It is devastating to have another member of our family attacked by this dreadful disease “ Tammy said . As a family, they started raising money with Walk to Defeat ALS ten years ago. This October they will walk again in memory of Tammy’s Daddy, Wayne Little and in honor of her brother-in-law, Lester Gant. “I will continue to raise awareness about ALS during my year as Ms. Senior Alabama with hope of finding a cure . “ said Tammy.
