THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,

As many of you know, I lost my Poppy exactly one year ago to Alzheimer’s Disease. He not only was my grandpa, but he was also my role model, my hero, and truly my best friend. My poppy spoke fluently in seven languages, built a successful company from the ground up, and helped make a difference in many, many people’s lives. Poppy was able to survive and overcome the loss of his entire family in the Holocaust, finding the courage to venture to America without knowing a single word of English. His tenacity to live--and to love--was further ignited with the marriage to his beautiful wife, the birth of three children, and nine incredible grandchildren.

Surely, it seemed as though he could overcome whatever challenge came his way. But there was one battle, however, that he simply was unable to beat: Alzheimer’s Disease.

Because no one can.

My Poppy passed away on the 60th anniversary of the day he and my Nonny met. Nonny was the love of his love, yet he could not even remember who she was, let alone that he was even married. Her sister, Anna, is also affected and is unfortunately following in the same path.

Today more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease with another American developing Alzheimer’s every 68 seconds. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and the amount affected will triple by 2050. Despite this, it is the only cause of death among the top ten in America without a way to prevent, cure, or even slow down its progression. Alzheimer’s is a disease without much hope.

Please join me in the campaign to help stop this terrible disease.

With your help, I plan to change the future of Alzheimer’s. I plan, borrowing all the strength and love from my Poppy, to go beyond hope and to seek help--to find a cure. If my Poppy taught me anything, it was to never give up, and that family is the most important thing in the world. Please help me fight for those people, whether directly or indirectly, who battle Alzheimer’s on a daily basis.

Seth Rogen (yes, the actor who is best known for getting high and cracking vulgar jokes) has created Hilarity for Charity, an extraordinary campaign that is meant to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s among a younger generation. Seth has agreed to visit the school that is able to raise the most money by April 11th. During this visit, he will screen his newest movie Neighbors.

Please help me towards this goal, as every single cent can make a difference. And, hey, who wants to meet Seth?

Thank you so much for your support. Go Blue and Beat Alzheimer’s.
