Dear Friends and Family,

This fall it will have been 17 years since I first heard the words ‘Parkinson’s disease’ as they pertained to me. The neurologist said something like, “I can’t be sure, but you may have Parkinson’s disease.” To which I replied, “huh?”

Looking back, the symptoms first appeared about two years earlier. And it would be another year before I was examined by a movement disorder specialist for the final authoritative, “You have Parkinson’s disease.”

Today I am proud to be playing a part in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. As Team Fox members, we are hosting the fourth annual Poets for Parkinson’s fundraiser; and we’ll be asking friends and family for support. Taking on the challenge of this fundraising endeavor is both exciting and inspiring. I am making a commitment to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease (PD). I am dedicating my efforts to The Michael J. Fox Foundation because I believe that I am helping to ultimately shorten the road to a cure.
