Something Sweet for Something GOOD!

Did you know April is Parkinson's awareness month? My Dad has Parkinson's disease.  For those of you familiar with it, you know that it can dramatically affect the person's quality of life.  In just a couple of weeks he's taking a big step & getting brain surgery. (more specifically Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery)  He has been such a shining example for me in all areas of life, And now on how to handle a major disease.  The man is truly AMAZING!

Because of this, several years ago I started trying to find out more about Parkinson's.  The Michael J. Fox Foundation is a wonderful resource & leader in research for a cure. They recently teamed up with Magnolia Bakery (the yummiest place in N.Y.) to create the official MJFF cupcake.  Available in both chocolate & vanilla you can purchase online or any local store.  Each cupcake is $3.75 & $1.75 of each purchase goes directly to PD research.  A sweet way to do something good!
