Greetings from New Jersey USA and DJ Laura
In 2009, I was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. Since that time, life has somewhat changed for me, as Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition. However, I am focused on living my life to the fullest, in spite of the challenges that this disease presents. I am involved with Team Fox, the fundraising arm of the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, and have attended and hosted many events. Being involved with the foundation and helping others has enriched my life.
Within the last year, I was given the opportunity to become a DJ on RadioParkies.com. This has proven to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. With the radio station, I’m able to put all of my feelings into the music and let my voice be heard by raising awareness; I consider this a great gift. Since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s, some things have been to be taken away from me, yet other gifts have been given. That is a blessing, and the radio station is just one example. For me, music is what feelings sound like. My hope is that through music, I will connect with all of you while sharing some of my favorite songs and artists.
I reside in the New Jersey shore area with my husband and two sons, and I enjoy the beach, reading, and most of all, listening to music. Please visit the radioparkies.com homepage and click on the links where you will find a wealth of information and interactive forums and blogs. If you want your voice to be heard contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly share your message or play your song request.
