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.
