In my life there have been many people and things that have been huge influences on me. Soccer is one thing that has been a big thing I my life. I have played soccer for almost twelve years, so it has taken up most of my life. Even though soccer is such a big deal to me, there is one thing that has influenced me much more then soccer or anything else. That would be my grandma. She is one of those people that have made such a big impression on my life. About six years ago my grandma had a stroke. That was just the start of her downfall. After some doctors and
hospital visits she got better, and even started living on her own again. She never gave up and always wanted to help herself and not have other people to depend on. I know one day I will be that elderly person. For the first two years she would go and feed her lunch. My mom being the only one left in her family took things very hard. While in the nursing home it was obvious that the nurses didn"tmt treat my grandma right. She would always have bruises and cuts that anyone would know that she couldn"tmt have done them to herself being in a wheelchair. She didn"tmt know where she was, who I or anyone else was, or anything that was going on at all. I will never forget her or how much we meant to each other. She inspires me to make good choices, because I think of what would make her happy and proud of me. My grandma ended up being in the nursing home for four years until she past away in June. After those two strokes she was put into a nursing home, because there was no other option. About a year later my grandma had another stroke, this time it messed up her brain really badly. My grandma has changed my life in a major way.
