Parkinsons SuperWalk 2018
Much has happened since I was last in touch with you.
In November, I had Deep Brain Stimulation at Toronto Western Hospital. This is the state of the art surgery to deal with Parkinson’s symptoms. It s not a cure, but can set symptoms back by 5 years for the most fortunate patients.
The surgery went very well and I was back in The County in a couple of days.
I recuperated from surgery until January and then the work of programming my neurotransmitter began. It has been a challenging process with the exhilaration of improvement and the despair of set backs.
Fingers crossed, I am in a positive place right now and feel that the surgery can significantly slow down the progress of my symptoms.
Many of you have kept in touch and your concern and support has been so meaningful to Vivian and me. A very special thanks to John Coseo who was there for us in Florida when we were at the lowest of lows.
Research to find a cure and support for Parkinson’s patients require a huge financial commitment. Over the past few years you have helped me make a significant contribution to these goals. Again, this year I am asking for your support and as in previous years, I will match your contributions to a maximum of $10,000.
Last year, with your support we were the 2nd highest contributors to the SuperWalk in Canada.
Thank you so much for your support.
