Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year. About 15 years ago, it just so happened that my mother, Paula Narsavage was one of them.
Over the past few years, Team GreenSweep has raised money and spread awareness for Parkinson’s Disease, in support of the Parkinson’s Foundation.
As most mothers do, my mother supported my dreams from the get-go. When GreenSweep, was in its very beginning stages, before I had a license, she acted as “Crew Leader” driving my brother and I to job sites and reading the New York Times while we cut grass. In those early days she packed lunches and paid bills. She was a one-woman accountant, route builder, and business manager. Her diagnosis came at about the same time that GreenSweep really took off. Her support had been crucial in taking my childhood side hustle and launching a professional landscape company.
My intention since our first campaign, was to demolish the stigma, shame, and self-consciousness that can come along with a Parkinson’s diagnosis. Any funds raised would be a bonus to that. I am proud to have seen successful on both objectives in our previous campaigns. Our early victories have developed a passion within the GreenSweep organization and we have been able to donate over $50,000. I would be extremely grateful for your donation and support again this year.
