The Power of One Person

Blogger: Today With PokieToo and Parkinson's Disease - Formatting Settings

This is a quote from the Unity Walk Brief Today about someone maybe you didn't know but whom made a huge difference in the disease I am fighting and I will miss her, greatly.

Margot Zobel, founder of the Parkinson's Unity Walk, passed away on January 29th, 2010.  Some might say she lost her long  and difficult battle with Parkinson's, but her valient effort to improve the lives of others who suffeer with PD met with unquestioned triumph thousands of times over.

Margot's life's work stands as a testament to the power of one person to inspire others to action.  In her quiet and dignified way she planted a seed in New York City that helped galvanize a diverse group of individuals with a shared illness, into a vital, inclusive community around the world.

The Parkinson's Unity Walk has becom a shining example of what grass roots involvement can do to improve visability, expand research and restore quality of life to millions who once felt powerless.  We are indebted to Margot Zobel for her vision, strength and unwavering commitment in the face of a relentless adversary, Parkinson's Disease.

In lieu of flowers, the family request tha donations be made to the Parkinson's Unity Walk in memory of Margot. Services will be at a later date.
