“Recently I have found myself entering into a new endeavor along with my father Jake …. in supporting the Parkinson Foundation to help raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease, the same disease my dad has now battled for over 19 years.” –Tammy Smith

Together, Tammy and her father, Jake Wagner have created the campaign KnockOutPD.  KnockOutPD participates and organizes events for Parkinson’s Disease fundraising throughout Harrisburg and Elizabethtown Pennsylvania.

At the age of 56, Jake was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.  For the past 19 years, he has continued to fight this debilitating disease one punch and one day at a time with his family by his side.   As any Parkinson’s disease champion knows you must adjust daily to the punches that Parkinson’s disease throws at you.
