Helping Others in 2009 (In loving Memory of Gino)

With the start of the New Year, we all take on New Year's resolutions. Some we keep and some we don't. This has nothing to do with saving money, shopping, or coupons, it's simply something I felt I needed to share with all of you. I'm keeping my resolution this year, which is to help in any way possible The Brain Aneurysm Foundation. Let me tell you a story on December 16Th, 2005 my brother "Gino" suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm. It was later discovered he had multiple aneurysms. He had several surgeries and never came home from the hospital. These aneurysms showed no warning signs or early detection. It was all so quick. After an extensive stay in hospitals he passed on August 17, 2006. My grandmother "Felipa" and my Aunt "Delia" also passed from ruptured aneurysms. Sometimes we think these type of the things won't happen to us, but they do. You would have never guessed that my brother was at all in danger as he was a very young (age 45), strong, energetic, fun loving guy (the life of any party). So you see it can happen to anyone at any age. The Brain Aneurysm Foundation helped me with informative information and support from others. The donations they receive are used to further educate the public about brain aneurysms, to support patients and families, and to develop awareness programs and educational materials for hospitals, clinics, and other institutions worldwide. Please help me in supporting them. You can visit them by clicking here.
