On Tuesday I will be traveling to Portland for the WPC.  I am looking forward to meeting up with friends from around the country, hearing about the latest research and learning about living life to the fullest with PD.  I will try to post a summary everyday and will write more in depth after I return home.

I will be volunteering in the Parkinson’s Foundation booth on Wednesday from 11:00-1:00. Stop by and say hello if you are there.  In addition, if you would like to tell your Parkinson’s story, to be published in this blog at a later date, I would love to meet with you.  Either stop by the booth, or contact me so that we can arrange to meet.

A Note To My Readers

I love to see your comments and get your emails as we share our collective experiences. But based on a couple of private questions from some of you, remember, I am just a lay person and a patient like the rest of you. For medical and similar advice, you need to talk to your own doctor
