Hello! We are starting a home-based exercise program for persons with Parkinson's disease. If you are interested, please contact me at [email protected].
This is my husband, Paul... Just looking at his outward appearance and the phenomenal shape he is in, no one would ever know that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson's for ten years. With his amazing inner strength and dedication to strength training daily, it has without a doubt slowed down his progression of PD symptoms over the past 10 years.

This past year has been tough for him, as he had fought the fight as long as he could and had to go on disability, which took a toll on his self esteem. However, he still followed his passion by getting his personal training certificate to train and volunteer to help others with their health goals and hopefully spread the word of the benefits of strength training while having PD.

As we all know that PD is mostly an internal disease, and the outward appearance and perception is not necessarily reality with what they deal internally, emotionally and mentally.

I just want my husband to know how very proud I am of all his inner strength, faith in God and continuing to fight the fight! He is the love of my life and I will always be there for him!
Oyama Karate in Homewood now offers Rock Steady Boxing classes! Class meets Tues. & Thurs. 10:30 - 11:45.

Michael Fitts and I have been in Washington for the past past few days attending the Parkinson's Policy Forum. We were planning to go to the Hill today to meet with our senators and representatives to ask for their support for increased funding for Parkinson's research, but we are snowed in and the Hill is officially closed today.

We are calling and emailing them instead and will follow up when we get home. We are asking that you take a few minutes today to call or email your representative and senators to ask them to support funding for (1) the National Neurological Conditions Surveillance System at the CCDC; (2) research at the National Institute of Health; and, (3) the Department of Defense for research on Parkinson's in veterans. #act4PD #Parkinsons

Please check out our videos on special needs trusts! So appreciate our new friends with PPA!
We appreciate our new partnership with the Parkinson Association of Alabama! You guys are doing amazing work across this State!

Just wanted to introduce the Alabama Family Trust. We are a non-profit created in 1994 under AL Statute to administer special needs trusts for individuals of all ages with disabilities. We are able to protect assets, help pay for long-term care, help avoid a "spend-down" of personal assets, help enable Medicaid eligibility, and utilize trust assets to improve overall quality of life. Please learn more about us at www.alabamafamilytrust.com
