There is just something powerful about saying 100 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro! I still remember writing a post titled Parker’s Climb – The First 100 Days, and at that time it felt like we were light years away from stepping foot on Mt. Kilimanjaro. As I always say, “Time stops for no one” and nothing is more true than for those who are living with Parkinson’s disease! And that brings me to why the Parker Family chose to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to begin with!

Merry Christmas from Parker’s Climb. Here is a look at some of my favorite things of the season this year! We are so blessed in our lives – I wish there could be a way to just bottle the joy and peace I felt on Christmas! When you recognize that all that really matters is the love of family, and friends, and the celebration of the birth of Christ, what more could we ask for? Merry Christmas from Geoff & Pam

As I write this on Christmas Eve, many friends from around the world are already awake on Christmas Day. As I write, they along with their children are already opening their Christmas presents and enjoying the magic of the holiday. 圣诞快乐 Macy, Sam and Kwok in Hong Kong! It has been a long night already for Santa Clause, and he still has a lot of work ahead of him to make his way to us as we sleep tonight in Pompano Beach. Soon he will be making his way to my favorite place, Italy. Buon Natale to Dario, Flaviana, Francesca, Miriam . . . → Read More: 191 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Christmas Eve’s Santa Update
It is already Wednesday night, just three days before Christmas and I am feeling a bit unorganized, and just a little OVERWHELMED! Is it just me? There are about twenty things I should be doing and not a one of them are done! I have two Parker’s Climb posts that are in draft format and not posted for Monday and Tuesday – that is just not like me – and believe me if my post are not up I do not sleep well!

One of the greatest contributions Michael J. Fox has made (and there have been many) since starting the Fox Foundation in 2002, is to open up communication between all groups studying Parkinson’s disease in order to benefit others working to find the cure. This has not always been the case in the area of medical research. The Fox Foundation continues to lead the way in combining the efforts of medical researchers, academia and the public sector with one common goal of finding a cure.

If you have been following our post for a while you might recall the excitement of the day when Geoff harvested our first crop of limes from our Dwarf Lime Tree! We had eight limes in total and they were perfect specimens!
The Dwarf Lime, Dwarf Meyer Lemon and a Dwarf Orange trees were gifts from Geoffrey, and he had them all potted up and sitting on the porch when I arrive home from work one spring day. They were full of blooms and it was just amazing to walk by them because the smell transported you to a citrus . . . → Read More: 206 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Parker’s Harvest Orange Crop
Tonight I share a letter received from The Michael J. Fox Foundation as the 2010 fundraising season winds down. It is exciting to show the exciting results achieved by over 1,100 Team Fox members made up of individuals in all 50 US states and across 21 countries.
Geoffrey and I have been supporting the Fox Foundation since early 2006, making our first donation shortly after Geoffrey was diagnosed with PD. Like most things I do, I poured hours into researching the foundations involved in PD research.
