I am walking to fight a disease that changed my life, a disease that threatened to destroy me. Not because I had it. But because my hero, my superman, the man I've looked up to and admired my entire life had it. And ultimately, this disease, took him away from me. I'm talking about my Dad and Parkinson's disease.
For years I couldn't admit to others, but mostly, to myself, that my Dad had this disease and that it was stealing away his strength, his independence and his happiness. I still can't face it.
I couldn't heal my Dad, but I can walk and I can fight to raise money to help others currently suffering and to fund research so no other daughter has to see what I saw and feel what I felt and continue to feel.
Please help me fight this horrible disease. I can"t bear the thought of another father and another father's "baby girl" going through what we did.
