As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's February 26,2016. Yes, I will always remember that day. I have been through all the emotions; denial, grief, acceptance, embarassment, self-pity, and many more.
What has always got me back to me is exercise. It is when I am running or boxing or weight training that I feel like my 'old' self again. Not someone 'too young to have Parkinson's', shaking hand, unsteady gait and just awkward!
I hope you will donate to the Foundation and support me in my determination to stay ahead of this disease.
I will continue to update my progress on my training and fundraising. I truly appreciate just your time in reading my story and supporting my journey.
"Studies show that 2.5 hours of weekly exercise along with medication, can significantly improve quality of life for people living with Parkinson's. We run and will continue to run for people with Parkinson's because this disease is a marathon, not a sprint. "
