Did you know that in the United States, a person is diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease every 9 minutes? There are 50,000-60,000 new cases of PD diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
Our mom, Connie, is one of those people. She struggled to find answers to her health problems for many years and was finally diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2016. Her life has changed because of her diagnosis and she has had to change the way she does things. She continues to live her life each and every day and has adapted to these changes.
Since movement and exercise play a huge part in treating Parkinson’s disease symptoms, our family has chosen to participate in the Moving Day walk to support the Parkinson’s Foundation.
If you know Connie and she has impacted your life in some way, big or small, we are asking you to join our team for the local Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day walk. Your support will help us raise awareness and funds in our local community for Parkinson’s Disease and help improve the quality of care for those already affected.
