Thank you for visiting my page. The purpose of this page is to raise money for Alzheimer’s research. The reason I am raising money for Alzheimer’s research, is because my Grandfather, Babubhai, had Alzheimer. I grew up with my grandfather living in the same house as me since I was a child and he has played an integral role in my life growing.
My Grandfather began showing signs of the disease several years ago. The initial onset began with him forgetting simple things, such as where he placed his wallet. It soon progressed into him forgetting people’s names and faces. Not soon after, he had forgotten his family members who he didn’t see on a daily basis. At this point in my life, I had gone off to college and didn’t see him on a daily basis. The disease took over his mind and warped his view on the world. For example, he used to think my father, his caretaker, was his brother and called him by various names. When I visited him in his later days he confused me for his old friend from college.
The disease progress to the point where he stop talking and eating. His body began to deteriorate from forgetting how to eat. Then earlier this year my grandfather passed away from Alzheimer's. He passed away mere hours before my grandmother did from other reasons. Oddly I was at peace with his passing, because I knew his mind was free from Alzheimer’s.
After seeing what Alzheimer's dementia can do to a person and their family, I became inspired to join BvB to fundraise money to help fund Alzheimer research. For this reason, I ask if you can, please donate to this great cause. Thank you for your donation!
