I saw a post on face book for a "Parkinsons awareness bracelet. The bracelet had the words ,"Be Brave" on it. Something about this seemed unsettling to me. I think that the "Cure" for Cancer is marketed everywhere and so it should be..But why would you want to support Parkinsons research by telling people to "Be Brave"?
I say, be Bold. be Outspoken, be Active and shake the trees until people realize that Parkinsons can effect anyone!. We must actively seek BETTER TREATMENT, MORE PUBLIC EDUCATION, and a CURE.Sure it takes great courage on the part of anyone dealing with this nasty thing called Parkinsons to live with it- But the message to "Be Brave" sounds to me too much like "grin and bare it".
I would like to hear from you out there...what would YOU like to see on a bracelet to support research for a cure for Parkinsons?
