Hi, I would be so grateful if you would take a few minutes to view and share my campaign www.gofundme.com/ljvparkinsons

Hi Lesley my dad has Parkinson's so I sympathise.
However despite your mobility issues you clearly have many skills and I am sure could pick up work from home proof reading, doing virtual assistant work etc, have you checked people for hire and similar websited? I'm only saying this as I don't think many people go to tuition for things like driving theory test or how to do a web search and you may also be vulnerable allowing strangers into your home. Somperhaps a rethink k of your strategy may help.
Good luck

Hi, thank you so much for your reply, I wanted to provide a wide range of subjects that I was able to assist with within my local area which is pretty rural, our nearest college is 22 miles away and so I wanted to offer as much as I could and yes proof reading was one of the things that I would intend to offer - once again thanks for your best wishes

Hi, thanks for message - link should be ok now, not quite sure what happened, many thanks

I wish you the best of luck and will donate when I can. My main piece of advise from PD experience (my mum) is to keep up with your exercises, any physio etc to keep your mobility for as long as possible. Best wishes

Hi again Hickorydickorynurseryrhyme, thank you so much for viewing my campaign, support from people is so important, I am very motivated and stubbornly independent but you will be aware from your experience of PD with your mum what a struggle life can be with this awful disease so I strive to keep myself busy. I also find that Physio helps.
Would you also mind sharing my campaign as I would like to be able to inspire others who are in a similar situation that there is life after diagnosis and I always say that I am in the driving seat and Parkinson's is just a passenger in the back seat.
Once again many thanks and best wishes to you and your mum

Love this and will quote it to my dad who has had parkinsons for 10 years now, its a horrible disease and causes so much upset to everyone, df is now in the advanced stage and we are having to move him to a care home which has torn our families hearts out. Definitely keep going with the exercises, df really enjoyed his neuro physio sessions when he attended

Hi AddALemon
Glad you liked my motto! Thanks for sharing your story, many best wishes to you, your dad and family

Hi, thank you for your messages of support so far, I'm just repeating my request for donations please, since the last postings I've actually had several requests for tutorial support, however without the resources I need I would be unable to accept this work - please help if you can, anything you can give would be very much appreciated, view my campaign at www.gofundme.com/ljvparkinsons
many thanks
