In 2018, my personal physician noticed some changes in my facial expressions and movements. He suggested I see a specialist, and what started out as a routine physical, turned into a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.
Since my diagnosis, with a dedicated team that includes physicians, my sparring partners and trainers with PD Gladiators, and most importantly my friends and family, we have tackled this new normal.
Together we are looking to help the Parkinson’s Foundation which provides care, respite, and life changing research for those living with Parkinson’s Disease.
On October 17, 2020 we will be taking part in the Parkinson’s Foundation’s Atlanta Moving Day Walk and hope that you’ll take part as a member of Team Mindel.
Why should you become a member of Team Mindel?
The Mission - The Parkinson’s Foundation has an important mission - to make life better for people living with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure.
The Movement - More than just a walk, Moving Day is a powerful, fun and inspiring event that raises awareness and funds to beat Parkinson’s.
The Impact - There are over one million people currently living with Parkinson's disease and 50,000 - 60,000 new cases diagnosed annually. With every dollar raised, the Parkinson’s Foundation is able to provide life-changing support to people living with PD and their caregivers.
Team Mindel is bigger than Moving Day. Team Mindel is family, and in this family... no one fights alone.
