THE STORY:

“I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.” ― Maya Angelou The above quote is one that leads & guides me daily in the space that I am in with my life right now. It is a space that I appreciate, one that is allowing my faith to grow stronger daily, and one that is allowing me to see myself mature before my very own eyes, among other things! It is for these reasons, among others, that I have decided to DONATE MY BIRTHDAY to the cause of Alzheimer's Disease! Those that know me personally know that I love two things, traveling & my birthday! They also know that I usually celebrate my birthday with a big trip or a big shindig of some sort to bring in MY new year! However, 2016 has me on a unique path already and it is my mission to still celebrate my birthday in a BIG way...just in another direction by donating it to charity! In 2005, my very special and loving grandmother passed away and she suffered from Alzheimer's Disease at the time of her passing. Every since then, I have been on a mission to do all I can to bring attention to this disease and this year I am laser focused on increasing my efforts to raise money towards finding a cure! FAST FACTS: 1. In the U.S. alone, more than 5 million people suffer from this incurable disease. 2. Every 68 seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. 3. By 2025, the cost will be approximately $305 BILLION for Alzheimer's disease care. 4. There is no cure for this disease, but medication and treatments can temporarily improve symptoms Based on the above info, and much more, my goal is to raise just $3,200 ( I will be 32 years old this year) to go towards the research that is necessary to continue working to find a cure for this disease or temporarily relieve symptoms. Many of us know at least 1bperson who has been affected by this disease or who it is affected now. So, help me in this fight and help me CELEBRATE my birthday by making a donation to this cause and taking down this awful disease! Love & Light...AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Shaana P.S. All proceeds go directly to charity! My hands will never touch the funds
