THE STORY:

My grandmother, Maria Quimi was the matriarch of the Quimi Family. She was a sweet, soft-spoken lady, yet she was very courageous. She was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2005 and lost her battle to this illness in 2013. She was a fighter and although this disease gradually affected her mobility, it didn’t stop her from being there for her family. She was always involved in all of our lives and was present in every special occasion.

I’m very proud to be her granddaughter and will be running the New York City Marathon on November 6th, 2016 to honor her memory and to raise awareness of Parkinson’s.

I've joined Team Hope to beat Parkinson's for the National Parkinson's Foundation and my goal is to raise $2,500. Any contribution would be so greatly appreciated.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement. It develops gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Although a tremor may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson’s, this disorder also causes stiffness or slowing of movement.  Recent research indicates that at least one million people in the United States, and more than five million worldwide, have Parkinson's disease. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mi abuelita María Quimi era la matriarca de la Familia Quimi. Era una señora bondadosa, con una voz, dulce, pero muy valiente. A ella la diagnosticaron con Parkinson en el 2005 y falleció a causa de complicaciones por esta enfermedad en el 2013. Ella era una luchadora y aunque esta enfermedad fue afectando su movilidad poco a poco, esto no le impido siempre estar al pendiente de su familia. Siempre estuvo involucrada en lo que pasaba con cada uno de nosotros y estuvo presente en ocasiones especiales.

Me siento muy orgullosa de ser nieta de esta gran dama y voy a correr la Maratón de la ciudad de Nueva York el 6 de noviembre del 2016 para honrar su memoria y para crear conciencia de la enfermedad de Parkinson.

Me he unido al “Team Hope to beat Parkinson’s” (Equipo de la Esperanza para vencer el mal de Parkinson) del National Parkinson’s Foundation y mi meta es recaudar $2,500 y de corazón les agradezco cualquier contribución que puedan hacer.

La enfermedad de Parkinson consiste en un desorden crónico y degenerativo de una de las partes del cerebro que controla el sistema motor y se manifiesta con una pérdida progresiva de la capacidad de coordinar los movimientos. Estudios recientes indican que al menos un millón de personas en los Estados Unidos, y más de cinco millones a nivel mundial sufren del mal de Parkinson.
