Walking on Saturday September 8th!
"Our challenges don't define us, our actions do." -Michael J. Fox
I lost my father in 2004 after his battle with a rare neurological disease called Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). When I was 21 years old, Multiple System Atrophy (MSA-P) was just the name to something I knew little about, it was a Parkinsonism.
While Parkinsons Disease is the most common Parkinsonism, approximately 20% of people are diagnosed with another Parkinson like condition. These conditions are often difficult to differentiate from Parkinson’s disease and each other.
What I have learned through my experience with the disease, is that when someone has Parkinson’s the whole family and everyone that loves them does to.
Next Saturday I will be walking to fundraise and support families currently struggling with this disease. I am committed to helping researchers unlock the mysteries of Parkinson's disease, find better treatments and to move closer to a cure.
Every Dollar means new hope! Thank you.
