You don't realize what you have until it's gone. This sentiment has never meant more to me as it did when I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. It comes on slowly. While you are walking you trip occasionally, you notice that small gestures are slower than they used to be and you're talking to people but you are not making facial expressions when you think you are. All of these things happened to me but I didn't think anything of them. I went to a neurologist and he explained to me what was going on. I had to accept that I have Parkinson's disease.
With Parkinson's disease you manage the symptoms. It is two steps forward and one step back every day. This is because there is no cure. Drive Away Parkinson's Inc. has been established to raise money to help find a cure.
An estimated 6 million people live with Parkinson’s disease. I am one of them! We need to find a cure for this disease! The only way to do this is through research.
Every donation helps. One Publix cashier thought it was so important that he gave my cousins a donation while they were checking out.
Let's follow this cashier's example and see how much we can raise together. Donate $1, $2, $5 then ask family and friends to do the same.
