A Birthday wish for my birthday today.

When my Grandfather died, he had Alzheimer’s, which consumed too many of his last days. It is a sad way to go, alone, confused, in another reality altogether. I have had several close people in my life suffer from this disease. Since the year my Grandfather died I have been donating to the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory for their amazing efforts to cure this disease. I know many buy me presents but this year for my birthday (Today! August 20th) please consider donating a single $1 to this organization and let’s make everyone’s later years something everyone can remember!

Before I could even write this post my amazing friends and family had already reached the goal. So why not continue with this post and let’s get triple or quadruple the goal!
