Met two really nice couples tonight from the Washington D.C. area who complimented us on the Pumpkin Patch fundraiser. One of the wives asked me about what our connection with Parkinson's disease was (expecting an affected family member). I told her simply that we admired Michael J. Fox and his acting work, and we chose his foundation as our charitable focus.
She introduced me to her husband who revealed that he had lived with Parkinson's for 10 years now, and was grateful for the medications that certainly helped his symptoms. We all agreed that a cure will be discovered soon.
