IETF Cover Story … OY!!!

Whoa … as if it wasn’t enough that I won the SHARI FINSILVER Spirit of Hope Award from the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) … DAYENU … & I was honored at the most unbelievable event at Henry Ford West  Bloomfield Hospital with all my family & friends … DAYENU …  I am now featured ON THE COVER of the newest TREMOR TALK news magazine!  How much excitement can one broad take???

ET / PD Awareness Expo … 1st Day

Wow, I’m exhausted!  Up at 5am to work out, then at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital at 9am for our first day of a three-day ET / PD Awareness Expo.  Just got home at 8:30pm.  It was so successful!!!  Okay, so we need to do a little tweaking & we have ideas for making it bigger & better next year.  But it’s a great event.  Thanks, Julia Gorham, for all of your hard work organizing this fabulous expo. 

Remember ESSENTIAL TREMOR even though March is soon ending …

“The embarrassment many of us feel when we shake is causing us to allow tremor to take over our lives.  Instead, we must speak up about our tremor, letting people know that we shake & that our shaking is caused by a condition called essential tremor.  In doing so, we make others & ourselves much more comfortable.  We don’t allow ET to define us.”  – Shari Finsilver

OMG … the Shari Finsilver SPIRIT OF HOPE Award

I was completely overwhelmed, not only when I was told I was being presented with the inaugural Spirit of Hope Award, but that the award was being named in my honor.  Whoa … I need to catch my breath!!!

Yippee!!!  The time has finally come to celebrate National Essential Tremor Awareness Month, now that’s it the first day of March (bringing Spring that much closer).  And to jump-start our inaugural event, Carolyn Heise, mother of Ryan, a ten-year-old boy, made this poster to let the world know that kids have to deal with ET too.  This says it all …
