THE STORY:

A fundraiser for the Filipino-American Grandparents Association of Chicago (FAGPAC)...

Growing up, I have always celebrated my birthday with my grandmother, who we fondly call "Mama Laki" (or "Big Mama"). Her birthday was July 27, and mine is the day after. I was a Grandma's Boy. She pinned my ribbons and medals from Kindergarten up to High School, and my parents were fine with that. She was the only grandparent I have known, and we were really close. I would like to believe that I was her favorite. (Sorry cousins and siblings!)

The fundraiser photo was taken last July 1993, which was our last birthday celebration together. She passed away later that year. It was one of the saddest moments of my life.

For my 41st birthday, I would like to honor my grandmother's memory by raising funds for the Filipino-American Grandparents Association of Chicago (FAGPAC). You can also honor your own grandparents by donating and putting their names on the comments section. Our seniors are one of the most neglected sectors of our society. Please help me make our seniors feel special. Thank you!
