My mother died at the young age of 74 and I refuse to let her suffering and death have been in vain. As the editor of Greenwich magazine, I spend a lot of time at various events and benefits. I was shocked that in a town that raises millions for various causes, there was no major fundraiser for Alzheimer’s. Helping to found Celebrating Hope is my way of bringing this cause front and center in a community that is poised to make a difference. If we all strive to affect change in our small corners of the world we can—and will—win this battle.
