“Parkinson’s – what a scary word, with all the symptoms that accompany it, it can be so overwhelming that you sometimes forget that there is so much more to you than just being someone with an illness. Being a singer, the thought and pure fear of losing the thing I love to do most was almost more than I could bear. A friend told me about the SongShine Foundation and all the wonderful things that she had heard about the group, so this year I decided to check it out. Wow, is all I can say! Ruthanna and her pure joy and commitment to this project is a beautiful thing to behold; she is a magic gift to all of us, pure and simple; and Peter, who can delve into the meaning of a song and get the feelings out of you that you never knew were hidden down in your soul.

I thank God for giving me this incredible opportunity to participate in such a fabulous group, with such talented, warm and caring people. To our volunteers, to life, to fellowship, to song, L’Chaim!”
