"We didn't choose the music, but we can choose to ​dance like no one is watching." Lori DePorter


ABOUT me

My journey with Parkinson's started in December 2014. I was 45, a wife and mother - I ​couldn't have Parkinson's, but I did...we did. It was not MY diagnosis - it was OURS, and ​the DePorter Family began its journey with Young Onset Parkinson's.


Life changed, and we changed with it, especially me. I became a Parkinson's advocate ​for education and exercise. My passion is empowering others to live their best lives.


Explore my site. You will see you are not alone on this journey. Life is different, but it is ​still good.

Something to think about

Do you see each day as a gift?


You can face each day with a stake in the ground - you can ​use it to move forward.


Don’t return to it and dwell on yesterday.

Don’t lose sight of it by projecting to the future.

Stay in the present - enjoy the gift of today.

Did you think about it?

For Parkinson's Awareness month, ask yourself, am I living ​or surviving?


There is a difference. You can get through the day or find ​something good in it.


Be comfortable with the uncertainties - find the adventure.


That’s living.
