My Dad who has Parkinson’s Can Hoop – I took hula hoops to my Dad’s 60th Birthday. I was a little worried he wouldn’t be able to participate as he has had Parkinson Disease for 18 years and has spent periods of his life in a wheel chair. But when I started explaining how to push the hoop he gave me this look that said ‘Don't patronise me, I have this’. And my Dad hula hooped, in fact he was a bit of a show off.
