This is my eighth World Parkinson’s Day and my 7th post on the subject (skipped 2018). You can read my earlier posts by selecting the Archives tab above and then Apr to view the post for that year. If you did that, you would see posts ranging from reporting on the annual Oak Ridge PD walk to ranting about awareness for the other 11 months of the year. In between are posts about cycling in the lobby of the YMCA, the Unite for PD campaign and quotes from other bloggers.
Last year’s post was a review of the book Ending Parkinson’s. The authors of this book have continued to impact Parkinson’s awareness with webinars and the Give a Dime about PD campaign discussed in last month’s post. You can find out more about the authors, the book and the movement to end PD at https://endingpd.org/ The book is now available in paperback from Amazon, Indie Bound and Barnes & Nobel with all of the proceeds going to ending PD. If you cannot afford to purchase a copy, email them at [email protected] and they will send you a copy.
The book has inspired the creation of the PD Avengers group which I have also discussed in an earlier posts. If you haven’t joined PD Avengers, please click on the link to the right and support the quest to END PD. This is not a charity nor are they affiliated with any one organization. The goal is to unite 50 million voices worldwide to build a sense of urgency to END PD. If you are already a member, please promote the group to other PwP’s, family members and friends. We are almost 3000 strong now, let’s double the number by the end of Parkinson’s Awareness month 2021!
