Why did I stop blogging? I really don’t know. It’s two years since I climbed Kilimanjaro and I have hardly blogged since. There have been a few false starts and this is another potential one. I’m not motivated to start again; I’m time poor and I enjoy my new life where I don’t think Parkinson’s 24/7. But there is much happening and I get enjoyment from sharing it, so share it I will. Or at least start to.
As a charity, Funding Neuro will break new ground; fundraising for use of the Frenchay delivery system to deliver chemo to brain tumours. We have targeted raising £250,000 this year which will take us passed the £1m mark through a series of top notch events like A Night at The Wacky Races, The Dunblane Wedding and The Great Scots Cup.
The highlight of the year will be the weekend of June 13-15. Three events in Aberdeen which will raise the bar again. The press launch is next week and we will spill the beans then.
My Parkinson’s continues grind at me. I admire his tenacity. However a positive mindset is keeping me ahead but exercise has had many false starts too. Every first run I try I pick up an injury. Today was a third run in the latest false start and my knee is like a balloon. It is most frustrating.
But its all about taking positive steps and keeping hope alive. It burns brighter in me than ever.
