Why We Call Them Warriors
Parkinson’s sufferers, especially those in the advanced stages of the disease, fight every day to complete simple tasks that the rest of us take for granted. They combat debilitating symptoms of this terrible disease with the knowledge that their symptoms are going to get progressively worse over time. Our P4P Warriors have the willpower to get up each day and battle against these symptoms. They get to the gym and fight to regain control of their physicality and mentality. And for this, we call them Warriors.
