About me

Gender FEMALE
Location United States
Introduction I'm married to a remarkable man. Between us we have 4 wonderful children and 3 grandchildren. If you have grandchildren you will understand when I say "ahhhh-sweet' :>) What makes me happy is helping others to have a better quality of life. I am a former ballerina and have been very active and physical all my life. When my husband developed Parkinson's disease my desire to help, nurture, protect and improve his quality of life went into overdrive. Watching his limitations as his head began to drop led me to search for what would make life easier. Neck braces were limiting, hot and made his mouth and chin hurt. Eating and socializing were next to impossible. Out of necessity comes invention and the Looking Forward Head Support System was 'born'. It has been life changing. He now enjoys going out more, looking people 'in the eye' and can continue doing the writing he loves. With this blog I would love to share our positive experiences and hopefully answer a few questions you may have. Life is hard, challenging and sometimes sad. Sharing is healthy and welcome and sometimes very therapeutic. It also allows me to do what I love, help others.
