Poppy’s Crew is a group of family members and friends who deeply care for and love our “Poppy”- Jim Kilpatrick. Poppy holds many titles in our lives- father, brother, uncle, grandfather, Pastor, friend, Sunday School teacher, mentor and all-around Superhero who will also be a great-grandfather soon!
Poppy was diagnosed a few years ago with Parkinson’s but that hasn’t slowed him down much. Even though he suffers from many of the symptoms that Parkinson’s brings, he is an amazing testament to how one can live a vibrant and productive life with this disease. He inspires all of us and anyone he meets with his strong Christian faith, optimistic character and his never-ending compassion for all.
We are thrilled to be able to show our support for Poppy whenever we can and hope that by walking on Movers Day and other endeavors, we can raise money that will go towards providing relief for Parkinson’s patients like Poppy and eventually find a cure to eradicate this awful disease.
