My husband Alan was diagnosed 6 years ago and we have found that by continuing to be active whether it is riding an exercise bike, boxing, walking or golfing it has helped him keep his symptoms on a slower progression. It is important for other PD sufferers to understand how they can take a bit of control of their own disease. I also feel that our family needs to understand this disease better as we move forward and they may not understand why Alan is changing. Please join us in this fight against Parkinson's Disease!
I am participating in the Moving Day Los Angeles walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on October 25th, 2014.
The event will take place at the Autry and will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We will be able to enjoy a variety of movement activities yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
