I was inspired by Sy who decided for his 20th birthday all he wanted was for people to donate to the Pablove Foundation. Well I am turning 40 on August 4th. I have had some great birthdays and I am getting married on Sept 4th. This year I want to stay under the radar.
I want my friends and family to donate $5-$10 to the Pablove Foundation to reach a simple goal of $500.

For those that don't know the The Pablove Foundation is named after Pablo Castelaz, the son of Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz, and the little brother of Grady Gallagher. On May 17, 2008, Pablo was diagnosed with bilateral Wilms’ Tumor, a rare form of children’s cancer. The cancer appeared out of nowhere, with no warning signs in Pablo’s general demeanor or health. He underwent treatment at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. On June 27, 2009, Pablo’s individual fight with cancer ended. But we fight on in his name, with the spirit of love that Pablo embodied and inspired.

I know Jeff from our days back in Milwaukee when we work behind the scenes of the Milwaukee music industry. Watching Jeff and his family struggle with Pablo's last days was heart wrenching but they push on and inspire with their strength. I had the chance to catch up Jeff in New Mexico on his bike ride across America and got my but whooped while trying to keep up. That whooping has inspired me to keep peddling in hopes that I can stay fit and keep up with him next time around.
