BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association
EVENT: HFC U 2017
EVENT DATE: Mar 24, 2017
My grandpa Charlie passed away in 2014, and during the last years of his life he suffered from increasingly severe Alzheimer's. My grandma and one aide were his sole caregivers during this time. It was quite hard to lose him (first mentally, and then physically) but it was almost equally hard to see the toll it took on my grandma and the rest of my family. I would like to live in a world where no one has to suffer from this disease, indirectly or directly.
Fortunately, this semester my fraternity (Delta Sigma Phi) is working with Seth Rogen's philanthropy, Hilarity for Charity. Proceeds will fund cutting-edge research and also go to supporting families struggling with Alzheimer's, and no donation is too small. Together, we can beat Alzheimer's, and so I'm asking for your help so cases like my grandpa Charlie's can become medical history. Thank you!
