Carla Normand Keeps Sunny Despite Parkinson’s
To all who have donated to my GoFundMe Campaign, I want you to know that I would not have been able to consider any of the current therapies if it hadn’t been for YOU! Every donation uplifts my spirit, and enables me to add another piece to this complex PD puzzle. I hope to reach my GoFundMe goal as I continue to explore all avenues I can to control my symptoms, and get to the root of this mysterious condition.
At recent performances, it was wonderful to see so many of you. My song choices were varied and I gave it my all - despite my hands shaking. And no, I have not added “Shaking The Blues Away” to my repertoire -- not yet. :) I am grateful that Parkinson’s has not stolen my voice ( and I hope it never does! ) as I plan on performing with the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra into the future, and continue to lend my voice to the RSJO's wondrous music, which has brightened so many lives.
Some of you have inquired about my eye-opening journey as I try to peel back another layer of the Parkinson’s conundrum. I feel like I’m just beginning to scratch the surface of what is known and available - research, theories, therapies, diets, herbs, physical exercise, what may have contributed to my condition, and much more. It is quite overwhelming. But I do have hope as I attempt to leave no stone unturned in my quest. I’ll keep you posted.
Am I Grateful?
“Absolutely, Positively, and How!”
to quote a well-known 1920s song title.
I hope you will consider contributing to my GoFundMe Campaign. I am deeply moved by your generosity.

In previous times, there were several ways for our fans to contribute to keeping the heartwarming Jazz Age and Early Swing music we play alive. It was mostly by attending our live performances and purchasing recordings of the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra. We are hopeful that things will get back to the way they were. However, we really don't know how and when public performances will recommence. Hopefully they will miraculously resume soon! However, extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary measures, so we are asking our dedicated (and deeply appreciated) fans to make whatever donations they can. Here's how.
