Interestingly, time since diagnosis did not appear to be a major eligibility factor in the listed studies. http://bit.ly/1weXzaI

Fox Foto Friday: On Feb. 13, Team Fox Professionals of Chicago hosted their third-annual Find Your Fox date auction, raising $6K for Parkinson's research, and perhaps helping a few guests find romance, too.

Fox Foto Friday: On Jan. 24th, the London Devils 4th annual hockey tournament raised more than $5K for @ Team Fox!

Interestingly, the event starts near where the first research into Parkinson's disease began. "We like to think that the event starts at the ‘beginning’ of PD and hopefully with money we raised, ends at the cure," says event organizer Adam Kutas.

Short, intense workouts may hold even more benefits for people with Parkinson's than longer, moderate sessions. http://pco.lt/1BvdQKo

My Dad took two short walks a day, every day, until he went into the hospital......

The mornings were quite lucid, and we connected, for the first time.
I miss him....

I just appreciated the humor of it.  My 'freezing' is failing to initiate that first step. I've learned just to say "bad knee".  :)

How have the arts (painting, dance, theater, etc.) helped you manage Parkinson's disease?

I use art as a way to distract my mind away from any pain I may have during the day.  Since I am not a runner or big into walking races, I want to use this same art to help raise money for PD research.

Both therapies are designed to avoid “off” time in Parkinson’s — when symptoms return before another dose of medication is due. http://pco.lt/1uvySpx
