Like many of you, when I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, I was overwhelmed with questions. What do I do now? How do I deal with this?
But I knew one thing – taking medication and hoping for the best wasn’t enough.
Luckily I found the Brian Grant Foundation. The information they provided about exercise, nutrition and basic wellness gave me hope that I could delay the symptoms of this disease and have a good quality of life.
Working with the Brian Grant Foundation, we brought a boot camp for Parkinson’s class to the area where I live. Over the past year, my boot camp buddies and I have seen significant progress in improving our mobility. We feel better because of the class. Plus we love the camaraderie!
I’ve also participated in the wellness retreats and cooking classes. In addition to learning about a healthy diet and activities that can reduce stress and improve mobility, I’ve also gained confidence and energy to keep moving forward and do whatever I can to manage my Parkinson’s symptoms.
I know I’m fortunate to have the Brian Grant Foundation in my area. My uncle, who also has Parkinson’s, lives in an area of the country where resources to exercise and eat well with Parkinson’s aren’t readily available.
That’s why I’m asking you to join me in supporting the Brian Grant Foundation. My hope is that one day everyone with Parkinson’s will have access to the resources that the Brian Grant Foundation provides.
I also hope to continue doing the things I love for as long as possible. One of those things is dancing – I love dancing! I believe that if I keep exercising and eating well, I’ll be able to go back and dance on the beach in Aruba when I’m 80 years old.
On behalf of those of us that are benefitting from the Brian Grant Foundation’s programs, I want to thank you for your support. I know these programs wouldn’t be possible without you.
Keep powering forward!
