Information from the Michael J Fox Foundation (MJFF) - Coronavirus and Parkinsons
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.
Living with Parkinson’s disease can sometimes be confusing and scary especially if you live on your own. I have created a blog to document my experiences from the time I was diagnosed with the disease through DBS Surgery.

Since the company was founded in 2016 we have raised and donated $50,000 to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. This is great!
Let’s keep it going in 2020 with our 4th Annual Golf Outing on July 20, 2020 at the Richmond County Country Club. See the Events page for details and Registration.
