Fighting Back against Parkinson’s Disease!

Linda Sylva

Linda Sylva

Hi friends and family. Most of you know I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in February of 2015. Parkinson’s is a progressive disease with no medications to slow or cure it. We are participating to raise funds goes towards research and finding a cure. Currently, exercise is the only thing that has proven to slow progression. I participate in a program called Rock Steady Boxing. (If you have a few minutes please watch this video. https://youtu.be/fSnpPGruvSE)
I am walking with my Rock Steady Boxing members and our families and friends to raise funds for research to find a cure! Please join us by walking/running/donating. 100 % of your donation go towards research. You could be the difference.
Your love and support is appreciated.

Thank you for visiting my page! This year, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk for Parkinson's Research.

An estimated five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this.

MJFF 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.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of Fox Trot for Parkinson's Research proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease over the finish line by making a donation today.

Thank you for your support! - Linda
