I may have Parkinson’s, but Parkinson’s doesn’t have me…

Nelly was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in her seventies and determined from the outset to remain in control of the situation rather than let the condition dominate her life and outlook. She was a pioneering participant in the Steve Ludzig Parkinson’s program at Hotel Dieu Shaver and later with Rock Steady boxing. Her motto was, “I may have Parkinson’s but Parkinson’s doesn’t have me.” Nelly passed away at age 88 on March 20th, 2019. A beautiful, kind, and caring nurse for 35 years. God bless her soul.
