I am participating in the Moving Day Miami Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on October 6th, 2013.
I am personally doing this in memory of my father, who was dianosed with Pakinson's at the age of 56.
“As daddy's little girl I was extremely close to my father. When the doctors diagnosed him with Parkinson's disease I immediately began my research in order to help him and my family. I slowly watched the strong and independent man who once fought in the Vietnam War, opened and ran his own business and built our family home with his own two hands lose his independence and dignity. He slowly was unable to walk or do normal every day things on his own.
Although he passed away from liver cancer at the age of 58, we experienced the reality of Parkinson's disease. This has made me passionate in spreading the word about this under exposed disease and wanting to do all I can to help the cause”.
I would greatly appreciate your consideration in sponsoring our team and ask that you reach out to your family, friends and coworkers as well. Together we can make a difference! No contribution is too small!!!
Thank you for helping us support this incredible Foundation.
