As some of you know, our family has been touched by Alzheimer over the years, and we have lost Jean Rene's father due to complications of his disease, which was progressing at a sustained pace. We also have other close family members who have recently learned they are affected by it too.
Papi, our Gentle Giant, was a fabulous man. Although I didn't get to meet him until after the disease had had a pretty important impact on his life, he was a loving father, grand father, and a smart, funny and kind man. I wish I had a chance to know him many years before. So the battle must go on.
There is strength in numbers, and joining my Ride to End Alzheimer's team is an impactful way to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's!
Together, we can advance research to treat and prevent Alzheimer's, and provide programs and support to millions of people affected by the disease.
With all our gratitude,
Team Gentle Giant
