On August 24th, in Philadelphia, PA, hundreds of people with Parkinson’s and those who care about them will be meeting together at the Davis Phinney Foundation Victory Summit.
I have attended four Victory Summits and find them to be informative, inspiring, uplifting, and empowering. Registration is free. If you are on the East Coast or within a few hours of Philly and are dealing with Parkinson’s disease, I encourage you to learn more about The Victory Summits and learn more about what the Davis Phinney Foundation does.
Be sure to attend the first live online Davis Phinney Foundation Victory Summit this Friday 8/10/18 at 10 AM PST or 1:00 PM EST! I have attended several of their summits and found them to be very educational and informative. Use this link to register today: https://www.davisphinneyfoundation.org/live-broadcast-registration/

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!

Last Saturday, I had the privilege to attend and share some of what I have learned in my living with Parkinson’s disease for over 25 years. The Davis Phinney Foundation’s Victory Summit in Richmond, Virginia brought together 500 or more people with Parkinson’s disease, their carepartners, and medical experts from around the nation to discuss research and how to live better with this illness. The Event, both inspiring and educational, felt more like a close-knit family and less of a conference event. Having attended many Parkinson’s related events over my many years with this disease, I can tell you that the Phinney Victory Summit is a truly empowering and uplifting experience that educates and inspires its’ attendees. I highly suggest that if you or someone you love has Parkinson’s, that you look into coming to the next one.
The next Summit is in Pittsburgh on September 15, 2012. For more information, go to www.davisphinneyfoundation.org.
