Support Kimberley Peter for Parkinson SuperWalk
Today, September 5th, 2020, is a very special day.
Today, I celebrate my mom Patricia Hansen’s 80th birthday.
Today, I am also reminded of the weighty challenges my mom has had over the years and of the awesome resilience she has shown through those challenges.
Having been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease just over 20 years ago, she has met the increasing impediments with equal determination.
My mom is a bright light. For those who know her, you will know what I mean. That light, and a certain ‘sparkle’, comes through in her every interaction. She loves people and I believe that light is her gift — and that it becomes a gift to those around her. I also imagine that her light shines on both the outside and the inside, as it seems to illuminate her path and give her the strength to always take another step.
Still walking, in just one week, on Saturday, September 12th, my mom will participate in her third Parkinson SuperWalk. My husband John and I can’t be with her in person this year but we will be with her, virtually, every step of the way. We will be joined by a wonderful team that includes my sister, Teri Hansen, and the Linton family: Daniel Linton, Amanda Linton, Karen-Amy Linton, and Zachary Linton.
No Matter What, we will walk.
If you think of us next Saturday morning, we appreciate your cheers from the virtual sidelines.
