Welcome to the SHANBHAG Legacy
I have once again joined (my 8th time this year!) the fight to beat Parkinson's by participating in Moving Day Buffalo, benefiting the Parkinson's Foundation.
There are many people who are diagnosed to have Parkinson's disease. Some suffer silently, without even being diagnosed. It's an affliction that affects the person and also all the care givers.
I was a teenager when I was first introduced to this disease, seeing my favorite grand aunt sufffering from it. Subsequently, through my 50+ years as a medical practitioner, I came to see and know many who were diagnosed with this disease. I experienced Parkinson's through my own husband who suffered from it and progressed. Subsequently, two of my uncles and a close friend succumbed to the disease.
My only request for YOU is to donate, generously, to the extent YOU can. Every nickel and dime will matter.
Thank you all
