    Michael J. Fox’s story inspires me. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at 29 but he didn’t let it slow him down. He continued to work for several more years and has used his platform to raise awareness about PD. Who inspires you? It doesn’t have to be someone with PD, it could be a friend or a colleague. Why do they inspire you?

    I’m also inspired by a friend and colleague who seems to have boundless energy and always puts others first. Her selflessness and dedication to everything she does really encourages me to be my best! (And I make sure she knows that because everyone should know when they’re positively impacting others!)

    A woman who is turning 90 day that lives in my community inspires me.  She never complains, always has a good sense of humor about life and is very wise.  I am honored to be called her friend.

     

    I am also inspired by a veteran I know who has created an environment for fellow veterans suffering from PTSD and depression to use endurance sports and team work to help them through their struggles.  He has boundless energy and is so respected by his fellow soldiers.

        I met Sally when I first moved to my retirement community.  Ron (the veteran), I met during my quest to raise suicide awareness after I lost my life partner of 33 years in 2015.
