BENEFITING: WILKINS PARKINSONS FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2015
On the eve of my 40th Birthday I got the diagnosis of Parkinson's. I have had Parkinson's for 17 years. I am a single mother of 2 special kids with learning challenges. My kids can't remember me without PD. Unfortunately, PD is a destructive degenerative condition currently without a cure. I want to preserve my health much as I can to maximize my time with them. Thus, I am highly motivated to pursue funds for research.
There is promising research but it is grossly underfunded. This research has the potential to help me and over 1 million people currently with PD and the new patients being diagnosed at the rate of 1 every 9 minutes!
Our Team does variouas fundraising projects year round, culminating each year with our anchor fundraising event (SHERWIN-WILLIAMS COUNTRIFIED ROCK FORRESEARCH). In association with my 501 c 3, the Wilkins Parkinson's Foundation, I am raising money for Team Fox ( the grassroots arm of the Michael J Fox foundation.) Team Fox guarantees that 100% of the funds we send them go straight to research.
Please help make a difference in this fight!
