My Journey

Welcome to my page. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 4 1/2 years ago (just before my 33 birthday). This past year, a group of my friends, family, and I ran in an endurance run to raise funds towards awareness and finding a cure for this neurological disorder. This year, we would love to organize a race soley for this purpose. I will share my story as I try to run, and give you details on how our racing plans are going. Thanks for sharing my journey with me:o)

Long time no post...

Yikes! It's been so long since my last post. I think for the new year I will make it a point to post more often. I miss it when I don't! I have securred our race date for this year - April 6! Lots of planning to do but super excited to do it! I still need tweaking for my dbs...running is still kind of difficult. Could be the extra ten I'm carrying too!

Looking back on 2012 there is alot to be thankful for. Our first race was successful, raising oveer 4000$ for APDA. Having DBS surgery changed my life and gave me so much back! We were able to share our story with so many through NBC nightly news and a great article in our local paper. We were able to take a wonderful vacation with family to Myrtle Beach. Visiting wonderful family/friends along the way. We were invited to participate in a Phinney Davis Symposium...big things for such a simple girl <3 p="p">
All in all it is a great start of a New Year. I am thankful for all of the GREAT and WONDERFUL things that happened in 2012 and look forward to 2013. God is always GREAT!

  1. I was diagnosed with Parkinsons 2 years ago. I am 55 and thank goodness all my kids are grown and on their own. I don't know how you do it with young kids.

    Watching the video of you at church made me feel like I was watching myself. I just started on Sinemet and right now it is helping a great deal. I am glad the DBS is working so well for you.

    Thanks for sharing your story. It helps to know I am not alone.
