My Blog Just Earned THIS Award:



What a pleasant surprise to receive the following email from Maegan Jones, the content coordinatior with Healthline.
Hi John, 
Healthline would like to congratulate you on making our list of the Best Parkinson's Disease Blogs of 2017! Our editors carefully selected the most up-to-date, informative, and inspiring blogs that aim to uplift their readers through education and personal stories. We’re glad to have you on the list! Congratulations and keep blogging!
OK, I'm one of NINETEEN blos about PD that Healthline recognized. Still, I'm familiar with some of the others, and am happy to be in their company. Here's the full list.

Healthline described my blog this way:
John Schappi was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2009, at 80 years old. If you’re older and living with Parkinson’s, you might relate to his blog. He discusses the various struggles he’s had to overcome, such as coping with Parkinson’s after hip replacement surgery and exercising after surgery. Despite his challenges, he aims to live life to the fullest, and he inspires others with Parkinson’s to do the same.
A nice gift on a guy's 88th birthday.

Last year Healthline also gave my blog this recognition by including it on the list of the  Best Parkinson's Disease Blogs of 2016.

Dear John,  

I hope this email finds you well. 

I wanted to reach to you about my extremely inspiring mother, Sue Wylie, and her play Kinetics - which I hope you may be able to help raise awareness of.

Six years ago my mother was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s - although it was obviously a challenging time in her life and continues to bring with it its difficulties, she has turned her unique experiences and story into a play which offers hope and inspiration - along with real insight as to what it is like living with a chronic condition. 

Last year the play toured across the South-West of England to great critical acclaim with the support of Arts Council funding. The one recurring comment made was that the play needed to be seen by a wider audience, with people from across the UK and US desperate to see it. 

We are therefore launching a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the necessary finance to turn the play into a short film. If there was any possibility of you spreading the awareness of her project through your blog - I would be so so grateful.

Thank you for your help in advance. 

Kind regards, 
Ben

You should watch your diet and take proper care of yourself. God gives life once and we should live it with a purpose. I wish you good luck and a speedy recovery.
