My family is participating in the Moving Day Buffalo walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Western New York Chapter on Sunday, September 7th, 2014.
My Aunt Joan was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease a year after retiring at the age of 55. She hoped to spend her retirement years traveling which is a great passion of hers. However, this disease has made her health progressively worse and she is limited in what she can do. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Parkinson's disease, only treatment options and people get chronically worse as they battle this disease.
I appreciate any donation or support as a member of my team. I will be walking with my husband and three kids. Thank you!

Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
