Dance Party for Parkinson’s

One of the things that I love love love about the internet is that it connects you with such great people.  Ayer I wrote about how much my foot was hurting me and I even posted on twitter “Any Podiatrists looking to do pro bono work” and honestly I did not think that anyone would contact me….I WAS WRONG!!!!

I was contacted by Dr Alec O Hochstein who has a practice here in NY and also the creator of the iPhone Application iPodiatrist. Dr. Hochstein runs the practice with his wife Dr. Beth Hochstein but unfortunately she is not able to practice at the moment because she was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson's disease.  Instead of throwing her hands up in the air and giving up; she joined Team Fox and has been devoting her time to this cause.

Here she is talking about it on NY Fox News

And also on News 12

This Sunday they will be hosting a great event “Dance Party for Parkinson’s


And ALL the proceeds will be going to Team Fox. It will be held at Club Pacha and the event will include amazing dance performances, face painting, balloon sculpting, and many more surprises!

If you are in the NYC area, come check it out! and if not, you can also go on the site and make a donation.
