Take The Pledge
ABOUT THE POSITIVE PARKINSON'S PLEDGE
Some people have said the Pledge on the right is too difficult for those diagnosed with Parkinson's. The message is too daunting. I don't believe that. I believe you need to take this Pledge without it being a watered down version.
You need to aim for being this positive.
You need to believe it is possible -AND IT IS!
