I am participating in Moving Day® North LA County , benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation, on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

Most of you know I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease 2 years ago. It's been a challenging journey, but one filled with alot of love and more laughs then I expected. I am so thankful for the support I have received from so many of you. I have an amazing neurologist, along with the medication that is available to me and the walking I do with my sister anne and swimmimg in the summer time, I have decided once again to walk for Parkinsons April 29, 2017 at Heritage Park.
My life has been a challenge. I feel I've been fighting for my life since 2004 when I was diagnosed with an aggressive Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. As a result I had A stem cell Transplant in 2005 and a Bone Marrow Transplant in 2007 and had my thyroid removed for Papillary cancer. I persevered through all that and actually went back to work as a nurse. I was so worried that my Non Hodgkins would come back Im 10 years in Remission I thought I was going to have a reprieve and then was diagnosed with Parkinson's. All I can say is thank you to the Walk FOR Parkinsons you have put something positive in my life and given me hope. I feel by doing this walk I'm turning something negative into a positive. I love all of you for supporting me in this walk!
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
