Gabriel Coconate , my Papa, was one of the most amazing men I have ever known. He was so hardworking and giving! As a child we asked our Papa for a playhouse and boy did we get one. We had a screened in windows, shingles on the roof, "wallpaper" etc. He would come to our basketball games, take us to Disney World, and just simply play with us like any grandparent. As we got older and Papa's dementia was progressing he wouldnstill watch me in the backyard counting my baskets as I would shoot. Watch movies together and tell stories. I can go on and on about thebshort timr I had with him. He has influenced my life greatly watching this disease tranform my grandfather is something I dont widh on anyonr. I want to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you. Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
