He states, "each time I go to Beat PD there are new approaches that help me expect the unexpected in positive ways."


Beat Parkinson's Today member, Brenda Vanasse, pictured above, and boxing with Michelle Hespeler on the right says, "Beat PD Today helps me have hope for the future and hope for the cure." She was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease almost 10 years ago, and found, "coming to Beat PD was a life saver" and "a way to take care of myself." She believes, "if I wasn't exercising, the symptoms (of Parkinson's Disease) would be a lot worse. "
