We started TogetherForSharon® as a family for the purpose of keeping my mother, Sharon Riff Ackerman’s, memory alive and to share the message of Parkinson’s Awareness and hope for a cure. Born 9/28/50- Passed on 1/1/2020 due to Parkinson’s disease. Sharon Riff Ackerman lived with Parkinson’s for decades, but it started to affect her daily activities in 2014. Up until then, she was able to spend her favorite day of the week, Sunday, with us in the backyard, blowing bubbles with her grandkids, and eating the best meals we could find, but only after a lively debate over where and what she wanted to eat. I miss those funny arguments.
