April – Parkinson’s Awareness Month

Dear friends,

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month.

Parkinson's awareness month
There’s a life lesson that has truly amazed me here on WP, it is the story of Benjamin Michael Prewitt, gifted painter and fantastic father and soul who was diagnosed not long ago with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease, a disease that is not confined to older people and can affect people of any age.

You will have seen some of his work here on my blog. Yet not enough, so I invite you to  browse the galleries on his site. You won’t be disappointed.

As with many degenerative diseases, the ramifications and extent of the effects of PD are not generally known or understood until they touch our own lives or the lives of those whom we love.

Please take a moment to read Benjamin’s post and see his amazing work. He is an unique soul who turns his sorrow and pain into passion offered to this world. He offers his vision, feelings, paint, music, words, heart and soul so that others understand what Parkinson’s is. I bow in respect for his amazing sacrifice, keep fighting Benjamin!!!

Much love to you all,

    • Yes he has. And many others. And also I believe that there must be a cure and a way of detoxifying the body, only that the pharmaceutical business is too interested in selling chemicals instead of real treatment… 😦

      • I believe there is a cure for a great many things, but they want the money instead.

      • Yes, bloody bastards!!!! 😦 😦 😦
        There are cures for many things, there are people that know homeopathy and plants very well and have managed to cure even cancer, Parkinson’s and many other horrible deseases…

  3. Thanks for this, Ela. My mother died of this in August after some twenty years fighting it. It is a very sad disease.

    • My heart breaks because of this disease….
      I am so sorry to hear about your mom, God rest her soul.
      You had quite a lot of pain in your life John, just like me. You have my deepest respect and you honor me every single time when you stop by, even without a word.
