April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month – News and upcoming events

It’s been a long, cold winter and I’m coming out of hibernation. I promise to start posting more as the days grow warmer.  I want to share with you this picture of the first tulip to arrive in my garden.

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month so, I urge you to learn about Parkinson’s disease (if you don’t know about Parkinson’s), teach (educate others about Parkinson’s), or help (if you can volunteer or donate) to any of your favorite Parkinson’s charities!
