Birthday blog # 1 July 20
Title: Of birthdays, community and chai
I make a lot of decisions on a daily basis, for the organization, for my family, and for myself. Most of them work out well and for those that don’t, well I try to learn from the mistake and move forward. I have to say that one of the best decisions I made last year was to donate my birthday to a cause I care for so deeply: giving dignity and hope to people facing a cancer diagnosis everywhere.
At this point in my life, giving meaning to my birthday has made it exciting again. It really helps me look forward to it and to celebrate my life; be grateful for the great opportunity that I have to help others. So as we walk into the month of July the excitement starts building, and the plans start to take shape.
On Tuesday July 28th, I will turn 57 years old, and on that day I will open my home to host a Chai Adda. I will also open my Crowdrise site to facilitate gift giving. My goal is that with your help, together, we can raise $5,700 dollars that will go to The Max Foundation to provide life saving services to people diagnosed with cancer.
I thank you for being in my life, and for your support today and always.
