I am participating in Moving Day® Miami, benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation, on Saturday, November 10, 2018, at Museum Park.
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, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
My fundraising goal of $1000.00 will be used not just for research, but to help the patients personally. This money can be used for Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, help for depression, help with speech therapies ( speech therapy also is used to help me with swallowing
Help me live with a quality of life, not just for me, but also for the countless Parkinson’s patients I am able to help through Advocating. When I received my diagnosis, I might have been afraid. My mima, used to mow the lawn, ( and here in Miami, there is a lot of lawn.) My mima would play Baseball with her grandchildren, loved to travel. When the time came to just do cruises, because she could not miss going anywhere. I was there when she started with pain, then came the everyday nausea, and the slowness and slurred speech. From then on, life changed for her. I think towards the end, she would sit and watch novelas. She got to the point that sometimes she would ask for her mother, and for her sister. My father and I made the decision for a DNR.
So yes I was scared, but I was also very lucky. I had Pops with me, and my princess, more friends that I thought I would ever have.
So all these people who donate, do it out of love. With their help, I am where I am, until they find the cure.
AND THEY WILL FIND A CURE.
Support our mission to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson’s live their best possible life now. Your gift will help us fund better research, better treatment and a better quality of life.
You may think ” well, she made her goal, and now she wants more”. When I reach my initial goal, I will try for $2000.00 I think we were, as my friend Enzo says ” We were born to end this”.
