BENEFITING: MICHAEL J FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSONS RESEARCH
ORGANIZER: Team Fox Louisiana
It was difficult to hear the news that our good friend and long-time public servant Quentin Dastugue was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. I already knew how devastating the disease can be, because I watched my own father go through it. Growing up with Michael J. Fox on television, I remember when he first made the announcement that he had Parkinsons. Being a cancer survivor myself, I know first hand that there are many blessings that can come out of suffering. It is difficult to watch the Dastugue's struggle with this disease, but I know that if there is any family capable of turning this burden into a greater good for others, it is them. Quentin's legacy is already long and accomplished, but his greatest gift to mankind will be his selfless act of sharing his disease publically to bring awareness to Parkinson's and ultimately help find a cure. They are donating all of their efforts to the Micheal J. Fox Research efforts, and your support will be much appreciated.
