It is both hard to ask for support and to give support. These past few years I learned how to seek it out. I was also given a tremendous amount of it.
This past October marked a change in a nearly 12 year challenge with Parkinson's disease for both my mom and me. I say a change and not end, because while my mom is now free of her broken body and mind, I carry her journey with me. It pushes me to care for others, enjoy every little bit of life that I can, do what I love, and look past what does not matter. I cannot speak to what my mom went through. I do know being a caregiver is challenging and that support is very important.
By donating money for Moving Day you are actively supporting people with Parkinson’s disease and their families. Your financial support of this cause offers support by creating respite grants – so that caregivers can take a break and care for themselves knowing their loved one will be cared for, creating outreach programs to raise awareness and educate people about Parkinson’s disease, and funding research to better treatments and hopefully reach a cure.
Please consider donating, any amount is helpful. I truly appreciate your support!
