Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page!
Why does the Machos family participate in Moving Day®? Because every nine minutes, someone in the United States is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). One of those minutes was ours. A friend introduced us to Moving Day® DFW 2016, and for us, the event literally was life-changing. Our participation as a family (team page picture) resulted in Bob feeling tremendously loved and supported, and opened our family dialogue about living with Parkinson’s. Additionally, through the Moving Day® DFW Resource Pavilion, we learned of Parkinson Voice Project’s SPEAK OUT!® speech therapy program. Connecting with Parkinson Voice Project has been a tremendous blessing as Bob and I figure out our new normal of living well with Parkinson’s.
What is Moving Day®? Moving Day® is a movement for change – toward more awareness, more funding and more understanding of a disease that affects so many of our family and friends. Funds raised through Moving Day® support local and national efforts of the National Parkinson Foundation by delivering expert care to more than 100,000 Parkinson’s patients worldwide through the Center of Excellence network, funding cutting-edge research like the Parkinson’s Outcomes Project, and providing free resources for people with Parkinson’s and their families.
