April 4, 2011
I started out not knowing what to write tonight and then it dawned on me that’s the way this whole process began. I started out in Twitter with a blank slate. I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to talk about Parkinson’s or not, until I reached out to another who’s challenging Parkinson’s. I soon found a network of fellow like minded people who are not letting this illness define them. Rather each individual is facing this with courage and dignity.
It’s not easy for all of us. So I ask you in the month of April, please try to become more aware of this disease and help us find a cure. In Canada, the Superwalk campaign kicked off today, and many of us will be raising funds towards this fun activity in September in which we’ll be walking and running for Parkinson’s research. I might reach out to you, so help me if you can!
