Thank you for visiting my page!

My father, Harshad Patel, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD) at the tender age of 49. While he battled PD for 11 years, he was the backbone and inspiration to my dream of becoming a physician. His family and friends continue to remember his optimistic, resilient, and quiet, yet fun-loving spirit. As I rounds out my first year of being a gastroenterologist, I am excited to commemorate my father's life by training for a challenging bike ride along with my husband, Rakendu, and amazing friends (Seema, Chat, Hemali, and Yogi)!

This year, we are taking part in the Tour de Fox Wine Country ride for Parkinson's Research to support the work of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF).

An estimated 6 million people worldwide are living with PD — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this.

MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for PD through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

Your gift will make a real difference: Tour de Fox Wine Country ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Thank you for your support!
