I’ve been personally touched by the challenges of having a neurological disease ( called Spinocerebellar Ataxia) that has some symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease. I attended a series of spin classes called Pedal with Parkinson and felt stronger health wise and more determined to make exercise a priority in my life. I met some inspiring people at this exercise class and was encouraged to attend a Parkinson society meeting. I was overwhelmed by the large number of affected people, family and friends who welcomed me with open arms.
Parkinson’s disease is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's and can manifest itself in a range of both motor and non-motor symptoms. Living with Parkinson’s can be incredibly challenging for the individual and their loved ones. Currently, there is no cure.
In September, I'm participating in the Parkinson SuperWalk. I would love it if you would consider supporting me in my efforts to improve the lives for those that have been affected by Parkinson's disease by making a donation or joining our team the Sunshine Coast Crusaders.
