In exactly 30 days at 3p.m. I will welcome my 30s.

Earlier this year, I asked you, family and friends, to share 1 word you thought described me. Unknowingly, you sent words that describe you, too, and characteristics I have obtained thanks to you being in my life.

I am celebrating 30 years by giving thanks to YOU and raising funds for Alzheimer's research, the illness that took my dad and changed my mom's and my life since his diagnosis.

I'd like to raise this money to give back to a community of caregivers that is often overlooked, to share some of the love and support you have given my family and I through the years, and to raise awareness about an illness that is not an "old people" problem.

More importantly, I want to do something significant in honor of my mom. She alone cared for us, never getting enough credit for it all and never having enough resources available.

I invite you, then, to begin celebrating with me by making a $1, $5, $10 donation and raising $3,000 in 30 days.

And, together throughout this month, celebrate each other and the amazing memories you've gifted me in 30 darn great years. The #YearOfLove continues, let's make this happen too! #3K30D !!!
