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. Jack, Molly, Nate and grandchildren Rosie (3 years) and Ansel (6 weeks) will join me on July 13 to raise money for research for a CURE for PD.

My family has been touched by Parkinson’s Disease over generations. My mother, her brother and both of my grandfathers were diagnosed with PD. I was surprised to be diagnosed in my 50s shortly after retirement. I was devastated to think what was ahead of me. But Jack hugged me and assured me that I was the same person that I had been the day before...now we knew what we were dealing with.

More than 6 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. As you know, Michael J. Fox Foundation was established to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease and the foundation has spent over 800 million dollars funding research. Many of the research programs have entered trials.

Michael J. Fox has been a role model for many. For me, he is the epitome of how to continue to live your life with a disease that will not kill you, but which can drastically change your future.

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.

I thank you for considering this as a worthy cause for a donation.

Joan
