2010 Our monthly lunch bunch includes both working and non-working women in the Palo Alto vicinity. We started meeting once a month for lunch in 2008. In 2010, we started a Facebook page and began an informal outreach to the greater community. Aside from med talk, we discuss how wonderful it will be when groups like ours are available all over the world. We encouraged our Facebook readers to spearhead groups in their hometowns. Judging from the comments we received, the Roseville, CA area and Hawaii seemed like good places to start.
We are quite different in the ways that we display Parkinson’s. From tremors to slowness issues, no two women are exactly alike. Our commonality is our desire to live life to the fullest. We are travelers, adventurers, and creative thinkers. We inspire and challenge each other with stories of our visits to the heights of Nepal and the canals of Venice. We find humor in our daily lives.
