TONIGHT WE HAVE THE STORY OF A FOOTBALL GAME COMING
IT'S NOT THE PACKERS, IT'S A FLAG FOOTBALL GAME THAT
QUITE FRANKLY WON'T LOOK ANYTHING LIKE THE PACKERS.
BUT IT'S A FOOTBALL GAME WITH A LOT OF IMPORTANCE.
AND IT'S A FOOTBALL GAME THAT'S TOUCHING THE LIVES
OF A BASKETBALL FAMILY-- THE BOYLES OF MIDDLETON.
RIGHT NOW THE BOYLE FAMILY IS FACING SOME OF THE MOST
CHALLENGING TIMES THEY'VE EVER SEEN-- AND IT HAS NOTHING
TO DO WITH BASKETBALL.
EMILY KUMLIEN HAS THE STORY..
31;17- we were raised by a coach and thats a good
had their uniforms on in the morning - 31;23
64 YEAR OLD JOHN BOYLE AND HIS 32 YEAR OLD DAUGHTHER
BUT IT'S TRUE- SPORTS AND THE BOYLE'S GO HAND IN HAND
We are extremely compeitive
JOHN BOYLE'S A WELL KNOWN FORMER BASKETBALL COACH
HE LED MIDDLETON BASKETBALL TO A SECOND PLACE FINISH
THE STARTING FIVE FOR THE BOYLES ALSO INCLUDES.
BROTHERS DANNY AND TONE.
BUT THE ROCK.
IS MOTHER MARY
she took care of everyone before herself
BUT THINGS STARTED TO CHANGE SIX YEARS AGO.
MARY WAS BECOMING MORE ANXIOUS.
john - i alwayas thought coaching and teaching was
hard work and took a lot of time and i am finding
out its nothing compared to this
OUT OF THE BLUE IN MAY OF 2010.
MARY WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE.
SHE WAS 57
i- i kept waiting for her to get better at the time.
its never gonna get better.
that was hard and totally surreal.
still some day.
JOHN TAKES CARE OF MARY EVERY DAY AT THEIR HOME.
HALEY MOVED BACK FROM CHICAGO AND HER BROTHERS HELP
AS MUCH AS THEY CAN
MARY'S CONDITION IS ONLY GETTING WORSE NOW 61 AND
SHE NEEDS SOMEONE TO BE WITH HER 24/ 7.
59;59- retirement hasnt turned out quite teh was we
expected it to :07
WITH NO CURE IN SIGHT, HALEY NOW HAS TURNED HER FOCUS
TO ENDING THIS DISEASE
With his coaching, he taught us you do it and you
do it with 100 percent.
BLONDES VS BURNETTES FLAG FOOTBALL IS A PART OF THE
NATIONAL QUEST TO END ALZHEMIERS.
HALEY STARTED THIS GAME FOR THE MADISON CHAPTER LAST
-oh it was outstanding...exactly like being at a packer
OKAY SO ITS NOT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF FOOTBALL BUT
GOAL IS WORTHY MORE THAN ANY CHAMPIONSHIP
Let young people know this doesn't just affect their
if i could help anyone from being blind sided like
we were that is what I am meant to do
