Gammy A Story About Alzheimer’s Disease | by Seneca Monique

Eight-year-old Carrie can’t wait to get to Gammy’s house and bake ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookies, read books, and learn lots of big, new words. When her mother explains that Gammy is living in a different home now because she is becoming forgetful, Carrie becomes confused and scared. “But Gammy would never forget me!” she cries. Carrie not only learns a big word, “Alzheimer’s,” but also a different meaning for a little word she thought she already knew: love.
