Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder which causes a progressive loss of motor and non-motor symptoms that can be debilitating.Presently there is no cure and the cause is unknown .In the early stages mediations can ease some of the symptoms.More research and more awareness of this disease is needed in order to eliminate it.
My husband has had this debilitating ilness for the past 12 years.Due to tremors,motor instabilty and poor concentration he can no longer work.He now has difficutly enjoying the things he used to, namely dancing and playing dominoes.He no longer goes to restaurants because he is so self conscious.This person who was so in control and full of life (whether you know him as father,grandfather,brother, uncle ,cousin or friend), this person who we know and love is slowly disappearing into the shadows. My heart aches for my husband but I feel so helpless.
That’s why I am joining hands with the Parkinson’s National Foundation .
I am participating in Moving Day® Atlanta , benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation, on Saturday, October 21, 2017The event will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We will be able to enjoy a variety of movement activities yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, boxing, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
