Together for Sharon
Togetherforsharon It’s a Movement…no one is alone in this fight! In memory of my Mother, Sharon Riff Ackerman created to raise awareness and hope for a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
We started togetherforsharon as a family for the purpose of keeping my mother, Sharon Riff Ackerman's, memory alive and to share the message of Parkinson's Awareness and hope for a cure.
Sharon Riff Ackerman- mother, sister, and grandmother....
Born 9/28/50- Passed on 1/1/2020 due to Parkinson's disease.
Sharon Ackerman lived with Parkinson’s for decades, but it started to affect her daily activities in 2014. Up until then she was able to spend her favorite day of the week, Sunday, with us in the backyard, blowing bubbles with her grand kids, eating the best meals we could find, but only after a lively debate over where and what she wanted to eat. I miss those funny arguments.
We were just a few days away from the family moving in together, which is something I regret we didn’t get a chance to do. I always dreamed of us all being under one roof, but that was one life event that couldn’t occur as she passed away from Parkinson’s January 1, 2020.
Our wristband band was created in January 2020 as a tribute to my mom, and as a way to raise awareness of Parkinson's Disease, as we continue to hope for a cure, in memory of my mom Sharon Riff Ackerman.
