A man celebrating his birthday at the beach with some friends Tuesday helped make a wish come true for a man suffering from dementia, who wanted to ride a wave.
The man’s wife told Ryan Giancola that her husband had about a year to live and wanted to ride a wave one last time. Giancola and his friends got the man onto a boogie board and safely helped him enjoy the surf, video posted on social media shows.
“What (an) amazing experience,” Giancola said on social media. “And on my birthday nonetheless."
Yesterday an elderly lady came up to us at the beach and asked if we could help fulfill her husbands wish to ride a wave one last time. She said that he is suffering from dementia and most likely has a year to live. What and amazing experience and on my birthday none the less! pic.twitter.com/RW0rdhugK6— Ryan Giancola (@giancola_ryan) July 17, 2019
