I am participating in Moving Day® North LA County , benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation, on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at Valencia Heritage Park in Santa Clarita.
What does Parkinson’s Awareness mean to me? My Story begins after I was told I had Parkinson’s. At first my wife and I investigated having the brain operation procedure. We settled for the routine pill arrangement. It normalized the tremors in my left hand. And then we discovered the combination of Title Boxing for the body and Lumosity for the mind. Given this combination since January, 2015, twice a week, things have really improved or have been controlled.
Supporters from the Kiwanis and other organizations I volunteer for tell me that I seem younger, healthy, more sure of myself. It is very important to me to continue to make presentations in front of audiences and groups, free from shaking! It is good to know that I am walking straighter these days. To enjoy my family and join in to their sports activities of track and soccer. I am a good watcher! And to travel with my wife, as we discover new places and activities. But it goes deeper than that. My whole being is more in tune with the realization that I have an incurable condition that I have been able to control. I am not minimizing the fact that I have Parkinson’s. Instead, I am doing something about it! And it works.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
