Hi all! I have participated in this lovely organization and walk years ago for a few years and now I’m back, to stay!
I am a huge supporter for the research in finding a cure for Parksions because of reason number 1; my Father. I unfortunately had to watch slowly all the horrible, ugly things this disease does to you and the toll it takes on the caretakers. I have nothing but amazing memories of my dad. The only bad memory I have has nothing to do with him, but this disease making me not recognize him anymore.
I want people to understand how this disease works and not confuse it with someone being ‘intoxicated’ or ‘not all there’. We need to raise awareness and also be there for our caretakers who really never get a break.
Please consider walking with me June 1 2019, donating, voulenterring, anything helps!
