February 1, 2015 | by Darcy Blake | We’re honored to say that our Parkinson’s Women Support blog, 7 Things to do the Day After Your Parkinson’s Disease Diagnosis had the opportunity to be on Michael J. Fox Foundation’s FoxFeed on January 30. Nine days later, the likes on our Facebook page had soared by over 50. Our blog was also mentioned in the Parkinson’s Patients Support Group (PPGS) community newsletter. In just a couple of days after the PPGS newsletter release, we received 18 more new likes on our Facebook page.
Whoosh! In less than two weeks, we’ve jumped from 511 to 579 likes. This acceleration in Facebook analytics makes a point very clear: we have a Parkinson’s Disease community who wants to make a connection with each other. Our members want to share, be informed, and stand by each other in the support, research, and encouragement of our chronic disease.
Although we at Parkinson’s Women Support have pitched our tent as a women’s group, men are welcomed online too. We’re all in the same cause—to live as long and well as we can and to help our brothers and sisters in the fight to end Parkinson’s Disease. Our duty may be solemn, but our camaraderie is anything but somber!
Our tidal wave of analytics prods us to recognize the importance in making each moment of our lives a significant one. Our unity can become a grass-roots effort if we desire. We’re a group who is multiplying daily, and we have strength in our numbers and commitment. Michael J Fox Foundation and the Parkinson’s Patients Support Group (PPGS), thanks for the whoosh!
