Sixteenth birthdays are often associated with big presents - cars, cash, huge parties. But to me, there is something more important than all that: my grandmother. Alzheimer's has robbed her of her cherished memories, and of the ability to identify the ones she loves. But I know who she is. She is my beautiful, courageous, intelligent, and talented grandmother. She still makes me laugh to this day and often, makes my bad days good with just one silly face or noise. So I'm asking you, instead of sending me a birthday card with cash, or a gift card to a store, to donate right here. Any amount is appreciated, and it will all go to fighting Alzheimer's. Thank you.
