Some of you may not be aware, however our mom, Carole Fisher, was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 3 years ago this month. As with any degenerative diagnosis, the magnitude of that news changed our family forever.
Mom has been a real trooper (as well as Dad). She lives with a constant tremor in her left hand/arm and the disease causes her movement to be much slower than someone without Parkinson's. Through it all, she has remained positive and does not complain. She exercises most days and continues fighting through the hurdles that Parkinson's creates. She is amazing! (And so is our Dad who is right there by her side all the time).
One of the most important aspects of slowing the progression of the disease is to keep moving. We are so hopeful for a cure, so that the disease can be halted in her body as well as the many other people impacted by this disease. We have decided to walk in honor of our Mom.
We would love to have you on our team to fight this dreaded disease and help with the research to find a cure!
