Carrying the Olympic Torch for Parkinson’s today


Tom Isaacs age 44 carries the olympic through Welwyn Garden City today. With each step he will raise awareness about Parkinson’s and inspire others with his positive message, humour, inspiration and courage for people living with Parkinson’s disease and other chronic conditions.

I am reminded of so many people with Parkinson’s that I have met along the way as I reflect on the Olympics and the stories of amazing athlete’s pushing their bodies and minds to the limit of human performance.  People with Parkinson’s that meet challenge with strength and courage.  

Marathoners, photographers, mountain climbers, journalists, poets, artists, dancers, quilters, motivational speakers, support group leaders to name a few-  people with Parkinson’s that choose to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others.

One response to “Carrying the Olympic Torch for Parkinson’s today

  1. ACCEPTANCE. SOMETIMES WE MUST ACCEPT LIFE ON IT’S TERMS NOT OUR OWN. LIFE HAS A WE WILL BUT AS WAY OF UNFOLDING NOT AS IT WILL WHEN EVENTS TRANSPIRE THAT ARE BEYOUND OUR CONTROL WE HAVE A CHOICE WE CAN EITHER ACCEPT OR WE CAN MAKE OURSELVES MISERABLE AS WE STRUGGLE TO CHANGE THE UNCHANGEABLE. WE MUST ENTRUST THE THINGS WE CANNOT CHANGE TO GOD AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE THINGS WE CAN CHANGE WITH HIS HELP. ONCE WE ACCEPT OUR LIMITS WE GO BEYOUND THEM
