THE STORY:

In February, 2015, my mother slipped and fell in her apartment. Over the year before, she had gone from being an active and social person, to a frail and often solitary one. She had visited doctors, including a neurologist, who misdiagnosed her with depression. As stressful as the day of her fall and the subsequent fracture to her pelvis were, we were lucky. The doctors at the hospital immediately recognized the signs of Parkinson's , did the right test and put her on the cocktail of medicines. After 2 months in rehab, my mom is home, on her own, walking well with a rollator and getting stronger everyday. Over the last many months, I have come to know how many people are touched by this disease. 1 in every 100 people over 60 is affected. This year, I am running the NYC Marathon to help help raise awareness, understanding and money to find a cure for this disease.  Please help by considering a small donation.  Fundswill go to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
