Mississippi State fan surprises father with Alzheimer's with College World Series tickets

Lea tweeted a video of him telling his father they were going to Omaha for the opening weekend. The video quickly garnered thousands of likes and retweets. 

Later, Lea followed up saying they were on the road and encouraged those who offered to pay for their hotel room and meals to instead make a donation to the Alzheimer's Fund.
