Hi Everyone: Above is a picture of my BEAUTIFUL cousin Carolyn Gloudemans. She is the strongest woman I know and she is fighting Parkinson's Disease. This is my second year helping raise funds in honor of Carolyn at the Moving Day® North LA County Event which is on Saturday, April 29, 2017. I am hoping you can help me by contributing to this very important cause.
As you may or may not know, Carolyn comes from a family of 10 (6 boys and 4 girls). She was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma (a form of cancer) in April 2004. She received aggressive chemo treatments and a Stem Cell Transplant placing her into remission. Unfortunately her cancer returned and on April 7, 2007 she received a Bone Marrow Transplant (her sister Lynn was a perfect match). She has been cancer free ever since!! SO this year we are celebrating Carolyn’s 10 year anniversary of being Cancer Free but we are also taking this time to raise funds in order to hopefully change the direction her Parkinson's Disease is going. This walk is a way for us to help support Carolyn and the National Parkinson Foundation find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.
Any donation you can give will be greatly appreciated. Many of us raise money for different events and we all know that every donation (no matter how big or how small) DOES make a difference. If you would like to join our team “Carolyn’s Cruisers” and participate in the walk on April 29, go for it! The more the merrier! You will see a “join the team” link on my donation page.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
Love and Blessings to you all!!
Jean "Maple" Osburn
