April is Parkinson’s Disease awareness month. As you may remember, our dad has Parkinson’s so we thought this would be a great time to bring attention to something our family has been living with for many years.

Being vigilant about doctor appointments, medications and lifestyle are just a few things that you have to be on top of but we are always talking and thinking of ways to help our dad.  One of our kids recently taught him about music therapy which actually helps a host of ailments.  Playing music is therapeutic, stress relieving and we saw it work first hand!

Our personal point of view is that there is always hope – hope for natural solutions in diet and vitamins, lifestyle changes, new medications, and of course, hope for a cure!  Awareness is needed for so many things, and with it hopefully comes help.  For more information about what is going on this coming month, visit the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation website at pdf.org
