My dad had Parkinson’s so when my hand started shaking on a cold day in December, 2012 I knew exactly what it was. I was officially diagnosed on Valentine’s Day 2013 by a neurologist and referred to a Movement Disorder Specialist in Dallas where I was enrolled in a clinical study. I found researching PD very difficult so my husband did that for me. He discovered that everything he read stressed the importance of movement so I started moving. I went a little crazy at first but over time found a nice balance between working with a trainer, practicing yoga, riding my bicycle and walking. Needless to say moving has become very important to me.
Last year I was blessed to be part of the planning committee for the inaugural NPF Moving Day DFW. What an incredible experience that was and the generous support my team, Carey’s Clan, received from family and friends was FANTASTIC. Thank you so very much!
Please join me this November 4th for Moving Day® DFW 2017 at Globe Life Park, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation.
The 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.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me by going to www.movingdaydfw.org then to Carey’s Clan or to http://www3.parkinson.org/goto/careyd. Your participation and gift will help fund better research, better treatment, and better lives.
