Moving Day Sacramento

Marching4Murphy

I've joined Moving Day, A Walk for Parkinson's.

Last year was to honor my Grandfather Murphy Warmsley Sr. who fought this horrible disease, but this year not only do we walk to honor but in remembrance of him. I also honor my grandfather in law who lives with the disease & the many people living with Parkinson's, those who love them and those that are working to end this disease. My grandfather was a U.S. Army veteran who was diagnosed in 2021 with Parkinson's disease and although he was diagnosed a few years ago he showed signs in early 2019, but it went undiagnosed due to the lack of support from the V.A. Because of Parkinsons and years without the support and medication he needed Parkinson's and dementia took over rapidly making it hard to walk, he became bedridden, tremors got worse, fingers would lock up, his movement was extremely slow and unable to even express his needs. Parkinson's affected my grandpa in so many ways causing an inevitable process. This journey wasn't easy and unfortunately it came to an end September 9th, 2023.
