Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

Sonoma County’s Rick and Wendy Tigner honored by Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research

May 6, 2017



There’s always a charge when Sonoma County’s Wendy Tigner, wife of Jackson Family Wines chief Rick Tigner, reunites with Michael J. Fox.
“They have like a kinetic relationship,” said Rick Tigner. His Wendy and the “Back to the Future” star met again in New York City at a celebration of efforts to defeat Parkinson’s disease, which menaces them both and millions of others.
Fox and his Foundation for Parkinson’s Research presented the Tigners a VIP award for the $750,000 they raised for the mission at last year’s huge Tour de Fox Sonoma County cycle ride, and at a golf tournament at Mayacama Golf Club.
All told, benefit events hosted by the Tigners have in recent years generated $2.5 million to advance the Fox Foundation’s work.
Wendy Tigner might tell you she’s never forgotten when, not terribly long after her diagnosis, Michael J. Fox advised her, “Don’t let Parkinson’s define you. You define Parkinson’s.”
