Here's To a Year That Matters
Here’s to 2019 and using OUR voice to do what matter most to each of us. Here’s a little recap of what’s important to me this year💕 but I want to know, what’s important to you?! What’s your why and what will help you feel successful this year?
At the close of 2018 I lost my father to Alzheimer's disease in November. Then in December, my older brother Ted, lost his battle with cancer and was taken from a rare blood disease, multiple myeloma.
Did you know, that according the Alzheimer's association an estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer's dementia in 2018. This number includes an estimated 5.5 million people age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals under age 65 who have younger-onset Alzheimer's.
This is a PROBLEM. WHY are so many people fighting diseases at an increasingly younger age? What are we doing to prevent this for ourselves and in our families? Are we aware of what we are putting into our bodies? What kind of unnecessary stress are we putting on our bodies? What outlets are we creating for stress relief and how are we harnessing this energy to benefit us?
I believe the mind is the most power we have been given and it's up to you to challenge it. Please follow along with me as I explore this year different ways to prevent these dangerous diseases. If you would like to donate to an amazing non-profit organization, please consider City of Hope.
Here are a few pictures from this weekend when we celebrated the life of legacy of my dear brother Ted.
