#1M10MProject – Dancing with Parkinsons
Karlee has a very personal reason for choosing Dancing with Parkinsons as her participation in the #1M10MProject. Her background in dance and her grandfather’s experience with Parkinsons made this an easy choice for Karlee, who truly believes in the benefits of dance and the impact that Dancing with Parkinsons is having on the lives of those with the disease. Thank you for sharing your story Karlee and for sharing Dancing with Parkinsons with us.
