In 2010, the U.S. Senate designated April as Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Since then, Parkinson’s communities around the globe have boosted their year-round PD awareness campaigns every April. Considering approximately 6.3 million people worldwide have this affliction, public education is important. It promotes understanding, compassion, community, research, treatments, philanthropy and hope. And for this, I am grateful. But as someone who has Parkinson’s disease and must cope with the myriad symptoms – every second of every minute of every day of every month – I would welcome a designated month, or even one designated day of escape from PD. And I’d call it a Parkinson’s Holiday.
