THE STORY:

My Grandpa, Cecil Yancey Sr., or “Pops” as my dad would call him was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when I was about 10 or 11 years old.


As long as I can remember whenever we (my sister, cousin and I, who were all within a 3 year age gap) would go over to my grandpa’s house and he would ask us over and over again, how old we were, what grade we were in, simple questions and we just always knew that that was grandpa, he couldn’t remember. 

Then as the disease progressed his questions went from, “how old are you?” to “which one are you again?” or, “who are you?” Granted, the 3 of us did and still do look very similar, but none the less, the signs were there.  Then one day my grandpa went to one of my basketball games and when he left, he never went home, we found him on the military base that he worked at when he was younger (we are from San Antonio so it wasn’t a far drive).

It was then that he was diagnosed and we were able to put a name to grandpa’s forgetfulness…Alzheimer’s.

My Grandpa was taken by the disease in 2008 and he is greatly missed.  He was such an amazing man and watching him suffer through Alzheimer’s and only be able to recover long term memories (mostly anything before Alzheimer’s) made me realize that we need to really enjoy our younger years, because sometimes when you are at the end of your days, that is all you can remember.

I am playing in the memory of my Grandpa Yancey, and I want to raise money and awareness in the hopes that we can find a cure for this disease that tears peoples world’s apart.

So to answer your question grandpa, who am I? I am Tasha Yancey, granddaughter of the amazing Cecil Yancey Sr.

This is for all the clients and families my mom and I were blessed with caring for when we had our residential senior home. Alzheimer's has touched me in many different ways. I can only imagine how it impacts the families. It's not much but hope it helps reach the goal to help others! 1 year ago
