Welcome to our Moving Day Team Page for Nessie Strong!
Our dear friend Vanessa "Nessie" was diagnosed with early onset PD last year at the age of 41. Everyday tasks which we all may take for granted are a challenge for her and the best medicine, seeing as there IS NO CURE, is movement. Vanessa and US ALL are committed to being part of the PD community in hopes that research will someday soon, help combat this very difficult diagnosis. Every day Vanessa puts on her brave face and fights through her challenges. She is a mother of 2 small children (Leo age 6 and Thea age 3) who continue to be her inspiration to keep moving and keep up to speed on new ways to live with PD.
Vanessa has been one of my closest friends for 25 years. I have committed myself to fighting with and for her diagnosis. THANK YOU for supporting our team "Nessie Strong" because she is just that...STRONG!
In the United States, nearly 90,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD) every year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
