There is a huge part inside of me that is screaming and jumping up and down. I am filled with excitement and thanking God for helping me to maybe make a dream come true.
To let caregivers and families know more about Parkinson’s Disease. To have the chance of helping others to not have to travel this long and painful journey to go it alone is a dream I have prayed about for months.
Today I received a comment from Melanie Winrow. Melanie and I met each other several months ago here at WP. She is a wonderful and positive person filled with talent. You may visit her website at;
I was so excited to know that God may be opening a door for Al, others and myself, I just had to share with my precious friends. Below is her comment to me. You may also be able to see it in the comment section of my latest chapter from Al’s Life Journey, Chapter 6.
Terry, I’m starting my own radio show next week (guaranteed
4000 listeners). Would you like to be a guest to talk about your
book? I still keep all your writing (a grand total of 355 posts since I
first heard about you) and I can tell you that you have talent.
Over the coming months I will be doing a
number of charity shows (radiothons) to raise money for both Alzheimer’s
(first) and Parkinsons (in a few weeks time). If you’d like to get
involved with any of that, you’d be welcome (I know you have enough on
your plate. Importantly, is there anything Al/you need that we can buy
if we can raise the money? If so, I’d be happy to do so (for example, a
hospital where a friend lived lacked, of all things, an MRI scanner.
For lack of that, she was sent to Portsmouth as the nearest place – and
died en route. We would have raised the money for a scanner if we’d
known. It doesn’t have to be anything that big – anything at all that
would make your life (or the lives of other sufferers easier.
I am thinking of you and Al.
All my love
