Together, We Can Find a Cure


I am a sassy, active and independent woman who was diagnosed with Parkinsonís disease a little over two years ago. After my diagnosis, I set out to learn as much as I could about the disease.
A problem that plagues the research and medical community is that Parkinsonís affects everyone differently. Some patients experience predominantly motor symptoms, others are more disabled by non-motor symptoms such as depression, anxiety and cognitive decline. While the gold standard treatment provides symptomatic relief of tremor, no therapy exists to slow or halt disease progression. So how do we get there?
Without increased public awareness and increases in federal and nonprofit funding, progress toward finding effective treatments is stalled. Patients, their caregivers and researchers need your support.
I decided that I would help by coordinating the first-ever Pocono Fox Trot in 2015 a 5K walk/run to raise funds for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsonís Research. I am thrilled to report that more than 200 individuals participated in 2015 and we raised nearly $25,000 for research. Plans for the second Pocono Fox Trot are underway and will be held at 8:00 AM on June 18, 2016, at Ann Street Park in beautiful downtown Milford, PA.
Please visit our website at runsignup.com/Race/PA/Milford/PoconoFoxTrot5K to learn more about the event, sign up to participate or make a tax-deductible donation.
April is Parkinson Awareness month. This is your chance to make a difference.
Hope to see you on June 18!
