Nahid Jones

In the next week, I will profile some of the people who have taken up the "Parkinson's Vietnam Challenge."

Nahid Jones is a wife and carer to her husband Norman. Norman has had Parkinson's for 25 years. It was not easy for Nahid to take up cycling, but she was determined to do it, and has been keeping up with the front pack. She would find time in the early morning when Norm ws asleep, to take up her training. Some of Nahid's training was done in the Gym, and she has found it 'interesting' to transfer her skills to the ones demanded here with the different traffic and terrain.
Nahid took up the Challenge to raise money for research in Parkinson's. She says that she is suffering as well as her husband. They have 2 teenage boys.
This is Nahid's first holiday alone, and a well deserved break for a special person.
