MY STORY


I'm participating in The Longest Day, an event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those facing Alzheimer's disease. My team will complete a basketball tournament to raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.


In 2004, my grandmother, Pat Meyer, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. It was one of the hardest things for me, an 11 year old, to comprehend. It started with just forgetfulness. She kept asking me if I had received my birthday card from her. Later I was told she had something called Alzheimer's Disease.


She battled fearlessly for many years. It was one of the toughest things for me to watch. I felt helpless. After almost 6 years of battling she passed away on April 4, 2010. Our entire family was together when we got the call. Being her oldest grandchild it was especially tough for me because I, along with my cousin who is a year younger than me, were probably the only one's of her grandchildren to truly remember her true self.


My fondest memories of my grandmother was her passing out Christmas presents the day before Christmas. I was her "little helper." Now, I present to you the second annual Points for Pat coed basketball tournament to help raise money for Alzheimer's Disease through the Longest Day!
