In 2006 my father, Rev. Roy Anderson, lost his long battle with Parkinson's. He was a gregarious guy and real blessing to every life he touched. As country preacher for over 50 years he helped countless people during his years in ministry. He was a great man and I was lucky to have him as my dad. It was very difficult to see Parkinson's steal him away. It is noteworthy to mention that two of his four brothers also died from this disease. In his memory, I am participating in the Moving Day Walk, benefiting the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area on Nov. 10, 2013.
Why Get Involved?
The mission of the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) is to improve the quality of life for people living with Parkinson's disease, their care-partners and families within the National Capital Area.
PFNCA assists those affected by Parkinson's disease by providing resources, information and support, including:
- Advancing public knowledge of Parkinson's disease
- Support & education programs for patients and their families
- More than 65 exercise, dance, yoga, choir, aerobics and communications classes every month.
30,000 people in the National Capital Area live with Parkinson's disease. This is more than ALS, MS and Muscular Dystrophy combined. We make a difference in their lives and in the lives of their loved ones. Help us to help so many more. PFNCA is a chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation which since 1982 has funded more than $172 million in care, research and support services.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area and the National Parkinson Foundation.
