Overview: Those of you that know me, know I will do anything to help anyone that asks for help, and 99% of the time I can deliver whatever is requested. I am still working on a request from a few years ago. This request came from my Aunt Pat (Pat Haines) or as everyone knew her around me “Auntie P.” The request from Pat was to cure her. She was at the young age of 56 and diagnosed with Alzheimer's and Dementia. Pat started out strong and took all vitamins, classes, courses, out reach programs, and prayer groups to make a difference in her diagnosis. Sadly the disease has taken the same terrible turn as it does in everyone that gets it. Pat is now 62 years old and lost almost all memory, logic, and understanding. This terrible disease has taken my Aunt away.
Why I coach: Pat was an aunt that treated her 3 nieces and 2 nephews like her own kids, spoiled us rotten with trips to Disney World, concert tickets, Cowboy games, Stars Games, endless Christmas presents, and more love and compassion than a kid could handle as she never missed a sporting event, award ceremony, or key event without showing up and making sure I knew she was there.
Goal: My goal is simple, $10,000.00 in the next 10 weeks. Not hard to think $1,000.00 every week has a chance of saving somebody else’s aunt, mother, father, brother, sister, or close friend. So help me Tackle Alzheimer’s and donate today, every dollar counts.
Beneficiaries: Baylor Scott & White: AT&T Memory Center Center for Brain Health by The University of Texas at Dallas UT Southwestern: Clinical Neuropsychology Alzheimer’s Fellowship Center for Vital Longevity: Science of the Aging Mind
