My name is Bailey Cyprowski, and this is my "rookie" year as part of the Blondes vs Brunettes charity flag football game. We will be challenging each other on and off the field to raise money, alongside RivALZ, to tackle the Alzheimer's epidemic!
I personally have not had to witness a loved one suffer from this disease. However, prior to starting physical therapy school, I worked as a technician in multiple skilled nursing facilities around my hometown. So, so many of my patients had Alzheimer's. Many of them quickly became my honorary "maw-maws" and "paw-paws." After just a few weeks, I had about 30 new grandparents!
I feel honored to have been able to walk (and talk A LOT of the time, lol!) with some of the most beautiful individuals. Loving these patients and encouraging their family members through some of the most difficult times stands out as some of the most rewarding moments in my journey to becoming a future physical therapist.
I feel so blessed to be able to represent my honorary family while playing this game! This is a disease that must be defeated, and I need your help to do it. Your donation will advance the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Win or lose (but hopefully win) the ultimate goal is a world without Alzheimer's! Team blonde, baby!
Much love -
