Stay at Home Piano Bar Benefiting the Alzheimer's Association.
I've decided to donate my birthday this year to benefit Alzheimer's in honor of my grandfather who raised me. He developed the disease in his mid-seventies. By the late spring of 2014, he was so debilitated that he had to be put into a care unit. Other than his mental state, he was in physically decent shape. He'd kept active his entire life playing golf and walking hours a day around town. After being placed into the care facility, they took him off blood thinners and he developed a clot. He passed suddenly in September of 2014 from a pulmonary embolism. It was a blessing in disguise as he no longer remembered his family or even day to day routines. He was cremated and the ashes buried along with my grandmother at Black Hills National Cemetery at the age of 80.
You can donate to my fundraiser in lieu of gifts for my birthday, because it's a great cause, or for a song request. I will be doing a live show (Stay at Home Piano Bar) on Facebook at 7pm MT June 5th, 2017. Please join me for some tunes, wish me a happy birthday, and help me honor my grandfather!!! Here is the link for my birthday fundraiser.
It is an absolutely devastating disease and I hope that one day soon we will have a cure. To learn more about the Alzeihmer's Association, the disease, or how to create your own fundraiser, please visit www.alz.org.
