Broken Crayons Still Color

April is Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month.  For help, resources, information -- hope, start with these sites:

Parkinson's Association of the Rockies (PAR)

National Parkinson's Foundation

The Davis Phinney Foundation

The Michael J. Fox Foundation

If you or someone you know is dealing directly with Parkinson's, I have one word of advice.


There are classes designed specifically for this disease.  Check out the PAR website for one list of such classes in the Denver metro area.  If you want to talk about these classes or Parkinson's in general, you can contact me. I don't necessarily have answers, but I know some of the questions that should be asked.

Exercise! good for what ails you. Good for memory patients, too. Walk! Trot! Jog! raise a sweat, long life.

Keep moving! The old saying is true -- it's better to burn out than to rust out.
