Welcome to Coqui’s Crew Moving Day® Team Page!
I’m passionate about raising awareness for Parkinson’s Disease (PD). This terribly debilitating disease has affected our family in many ways. My mama, Carolina aka ‘Coqui’ (coh-key), was diagnosed with early onset PD at just 46 years old. Luckily, through advancement of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) technology she can live a normal life. She can drive a car, she can apply makeup, she can take care of herself. This wasn’t the case just a 2 short years ago, and not everyone is as lucky to receive this wonderful miracle of modern medicine.
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD. Join our team for the local Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help us continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson’s disease.
