Support [TEAM JEWELLS] for Parkinson SuperWalk
Hello All, it's that time of year again!
My name is Norita Jewells and in 2013 I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, although I had the disease years before my diagnosis. At the time, I was devastated and I knew full well it would be life changing. I struggled accepting my new reality. Learning about all my new symptoms including the ones that I had for quite some time, and the ones I didn't have yet. The biggest fear was knowing I would eventually have to give up my independance. I turned towards the support that surrounded me: my faith, my family and my friends. I try to stay positive with their help. By joining a support group, I've learned that Parkinsons doesn't define who I am. I try to live my life in a positive way with exercise, staying focused on my goal to live with Parkinsons the best way I can. I try to find something I'm grateful for each and every day, sometimes it's a big thing and other times it's small.
Here I am again this year, asking for your support. We hope that a cure will be found soon. I sincerely appreciate your support in the past, and I thank you in advance for your support this year!
Life is a test. It's a test of perseverance. A test of faith, and a test of will. I've decided to pass the test.
