As many of you may know, my sweet sweet Mom has Parkinson's Disease. She didn't ask for this or deserve it in my opinion. I want to do everything I can to help her. There are so many questions that cannot fully be answered with this neurological disease, but to see her have trouble with balance and not be able to do some things that she used to be able to do is hard. She is my Rock, my sunshine on a gloomy day, my advice, my soundboard and my love. If you haven't met her before, she's just plain, Amazing. Her love shines through upon first meeting her. Please consider donating to my cause. I want to help find a cure so bad.
It's so tough to watch even the simplest of things like getting up out of a booth at a restaurant, require such thought and precise movement or she could have a leg go limp and give out and fall across the floor. It's painful to watch. Her brain doesn't work like the normal brain anymore. There's a lot she has to think about with everyday walking, just to not fall on her face. She's told me she has to remind herself to pick up her feet. Could you imagine having to remind yourself to do something you have known to do since a toddler? Tough right? Please donate or walk with us. She's worth it!!!!!!!!
I am participating in the Moving Day Atlanta walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on Saturday, November 1st, 2014!
The event will take place at the Centennial Olympic Park (Downtown Atlanta) 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.
