Fight Like Grandma 2017

THE STORY:

My sweet Grandmother, Helene Campos, lived the later years of her life fighting Parkinson's Disease. She battled every day and, although we lost her in 2012, I believe SHE WON. She won because she never gave up and my family and I saw her stand tall and brave until the very end. I will be participating in this race to honor her life and her legacy. Please consider donating any amount possible; 100% of funds benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. This wonderful organization researches ways to end this tragic disease and helps individuals and their families cope with a new lifestyle as a result of a PD diagnoses. 


"The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today." -The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. 


Parkinson's disease is a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder that affects one in 100 people over age 60. While the average age at onset is 60, people have been diagnosed as young as 18. There is no objective test, or biomarker, for Parkinson's disease, so the rate of misdiagnosis can be relatively high, especially when the diagnosis is made by a non-specialist. Estimates of the number of people living with the disease therefore vary, but recent research indicates that at least one million people in the United States, and more than five million worldwide, have Parkinson's disease.
