Go Bob, go!

 | Don't Miss This Inspirational Story

Optimism can take you anywhere!

That’s a terrific attitude to adopt, especially when you or a loved one is battling a chronic illness. Bob Preston should know: He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) seven years ago at age 47.

But Bob won’t let PD stop him from living life to the fullest. He is setting out for the second year in a row for a 5,000-mile round-trip sailing excursion from northern Maine to the Florida Keys, with the goal of raising awareness and funds for Parkinson’s research.

Bob is not just optimistic that the cure for Parkinson’s will be found in his lifetime — he’s confident of it.

You can help make Bob’s dream a reality by donating today to help the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) ease the burden and find the cure.

If you’d like to follow Bob’s progress on his “Optimism Can Take You Anywhere” tour, please connect with him on Facebook and Twitter. Along his journey, he’ll be meeting with APDA chapters, giving media interviews and inspiring as many people as possible to join the fight against Parkinson’s.

Please send your gift of $25, $35, $50 or more today in honor of Bob’s incredible optimism and spirit!

To embracing life,
