I walk for Grandma
Marie was my Grandma. She was a wife, a mother, a sister, an aunt, a grandma, a great grandma and a friend to many. But to me, she was the centre of my whole world. She was strong, compassionate, opinionated, knowledgeable and amazing. She also, suffered with Parkinson disease.
We loved Grandma/Mum/GGmum and stopped at nothing to support her and make her comfortable in her final days. Stopping at nothing didn't end when Grandma passed away, and that is why I am taking to the pavement with our team of family and friends to help raise funds and awareness for families just like ours, in a similar situation.
This September, I will be joining 14,000 Canadians who are taking part in the annual Parkinson SuperWalk in support of over 100,000 Canadians with Parkinson's. Parkinson SuperWalk is Parkinson Society Canada's national, once a year event to raise funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure. Together we raise funds for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but for their caregivers and family members too. When you walk with me or sponsor me, you help us get closer to this year's goal of $3.3 million. Every dollar means new hope. My Grandma is watching from her special spot in heaven, looking down on us and I know she is smiling. Knowing that there will one day be no one suffering at the hands of Parkinson's. Thank you!
