In Support of Joanne Golditch

Alyson Hendler

Alyson Hendler

My beautiful mother, Joanne Golditch, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2005. In the last 3 years her Parkinson's has gotten progressively worse, and if you know her, you know she does not deserve this. I'll get straight to the point...I HATE Parkinson's Disease and I hate the impact it has made on millions of lives.

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

I am also running in honor of my grandfather-in-law, Norman Hendler, my grandmother-in-law Sarah Kane, and Martin Schecter.

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 or come run with me on March 25th.

Thank you for your support! I love you mom!

xo- Alyson

Your mother does not deserve this illness. It is not fair.
