Thank you for visiting my page!

This year, I am participating in The Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Virtual Run/Walk.

As many of you know both my aunt and uncle have recently passed. My uncle passed of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and in his memory, I would like to help raise money and awareness to help accelerate the cure of this neurodegenerative disorder. I cared for my uncle after the passing of my aunt and saw firsthand his struggle and fight against this horrible disease. Its symptoms often change over time and affect movement, facial expression, speech, and memory. Currently available treatments only temporarily mask symptoms while the disease continues to progress.

Through an aggressively funded research program and robust public policy efforts, The Michael J. Fox Foundation seeks to speed scientific progress toward better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s. And they are making progress, with more therapies in development than ever before.

Together we can accelerate this vital work. Please join me in both honoring my uncle and working toward a cure. Your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law and will be maximized for the greatest benefit for patients and families: 100 percent of this event's proceeds go directly to the Foundation’s pursuit of a cure.

Donate online to help make a difference in the lives of those with PD at https://runwalk.michaeljfox.org/virtual/LMF.

Thank you for helping move us toward the day we end Parkinson’s for good.

Warmest Regards
Leonard
