Welcome to Dianne's Superwalk Page!!
Most of you already know this, but for those of you who don't, I was diagnosed with Parkinsons's Disease in the fall of 2013. Parkinson's runs in my family, so this walk is important to me for many reasons. My mom's father had Parkinsons, as do several of her cousins. One of her cousins died this year from complications of the disease. I would like to se a cure, not so much for me, but for my children who may be at risk of developing this disease.
This will be my sixth walk and I hope that I do as well as I did last year! I raised over $2500 last year, so lets see how it goes.
As I did last year, I'll be selling my book Genes: The Story of an Accidental Superhero. As an added bonus, I'll be selling the sequel to that book - coming soon!!
You can find my story on Kobo and Kindle. All the money raised from those sales will go directly to this campaign! Thanks. You can also get a paperback version. Just let me know and I'll add you to my list and make a bulk order. The price of the paperback will be $12 and I'll get $8.04 of that.
In September my family and I will join 14,000 Canadians who take part in the Parkinson SuperWalk. Together we raise funds for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but also for their caregivers and family members too in communities across Canada. This annual event also raises funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure. Thank you!
