In the video package before her performance last night, Olympian Laurie Hernandez said “My grandma suffers from Alzheimer’s, so her memory’s not that great. I kind of feel bad because I’ve been away from home for so long so I don’t get to see her as much as I used to. She’s not really doing so well, but I think I’m gonna see her soon.” Unfortunately, a week after the package was taped…her grandmother passed away.
Thank you all for your love and support. It means the world to me— Laurie Hernandez ➶ (@lzhernandez02) November 15, 2016
