Self-care is critical for mental and physical health, but when caregivers spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care, it's a challenge. http://bit.ly/1e5vDDG

Endurance athlete Sam Fox (no relation to Michael) shared with ESPN.com that he often thinks of his mom, who lives with Parkinson's, during the most challenging part of a run, hike or bike ride.

"She may feel the same stuff, the same ankle pain, the same dizziness, so in all honesty it brought me closer to her," said Sam.

Fox Foto Friday: Congratulations to first time Team Fox member, Stephanie Weinberg, whose fundraising efforts for the Bridgehampton Half Marathon have raised over $17,000 for Parkinson's research.

"My whole life my dad has been my number one fan and running for Team Fox was my chance to be his. This race was the first of many and I will continue to work with my new friends at Team Fox to support my dad and to outrun Parkinson's disease!" http://on.fb.me/1EnWIHi

I use a rollator (walker on wheels) around the house to help with balancing.  It also doubles as a handy cart to transport things around the house.  Very useful and efficient!
