Suzanne Cardenas' personal story - help me change the ending

This is the persoanl side of my life. Very few people know that I lost my Dad 2 years ago to complications of Parkinson's. My older sister Jenni also has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. She was actually diagnosed a couple years before my dad and her tremors started in her thirties.. It was hard for all of us to see his decline but especailly hard for her thinking that was/is her future. Her tremors get so bad that she can't eat dinner with her family or leave work on time because she has to wait for the tremors to get better to drive home. She teaches me to be grateful for small things like being able to feed myself, tweez my eyebrows, exercise when I want and be able to hold a glass without spilling. I decided to partner with Michael J. Fox Foundaion to help find a cure. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease. There is a lot we don't know about Parkinson's disease. I am asking you to help for me, my sister, my family and her kids. I see the frustration, helpless and fear in her husband and family. All of us are scared. 

Jenni has told me that her 5 year plan is to be cured. I want to help make sure THAT HAPPENS!
