is fundraising to honor:
When my Aunt Rose - active, healthy and barely 60 - showed the first signs dementia, our whole family was confused and desperate; at this time Alzheimer's wasn't a term anyone knew. By the time her brilliant brother Mike started showing similar symptoms, we had more information - but still no cure.Over the following 20 years, half my father's family of 12 strong, vital siblings had all or part of their lives taken by this terrible disease, including Dad's younger sister Florence Anglin, the professional actress and activist who paved the way for me to pursue my dream. With few resources, my dad's big family depended on their small Brooklyn lot to grow much of the food they needed to survive. They passed that connection to the earth on to the next generation, and for me especially my garden is my refuge and inspiration. So once again, on The Longest Day my friends and I will be honoring my Aquino forebears by making jam from the fruit I grow alongside my Hollywood bungalow. I'm not sure how much we'll get this year, as the drought has cut into my harvest, but I'll guarantee that anyone donating $300 or more will receive a jar of this special EndALZ jam as a thank-you from me. And a donation of $25 or more will put you in a raffle for jam and other prizes. So please give right now (preferably before the 21st) to help raise awareness, support those affected and find a cure!
