Logan was well on her way to taking the entertainment industry by storm, until an unexpected injury with her mom puts her dreams of pursuing a career as an actress and a television talk show host on hold. Logan made the decision to give up her career and become her mother’s caregiver, she believed in her heart that her mom needed her and God expected her to care for her ailing mother.
