"I Walk Off Parkinson’s everyday with defiance and with a chip on my shoulder that encourages others do to the same. I may have Parkinson’s but I’m not going to let Parkinson’s have me."
"I Walk Off Parkinson’s by staying physically fit, by being conscious of speaking louder and by taking one day at a time."
"I Walk Off Parkinson’s by controlling it and not letting it control me. I also keep moving."
"I Walk Off Parkinson's by accepting my limitations, concentrating on what I can do, challenging myself to stay active, and doing it all with a purpose."
"I Walk Off Parkinson’s with a focus on not letting Parkinson’s limit my ability to move by attending PFNCA exercise programs. I recommend others do the same."
"I walk off Parkinson's by trading fear for education; frustration for activities that feed my mind and spirit; and a sense of loss with gratitude for every day we still have."
