Heather Hammond, Program Manager of the Parkinson Association of the Carolinas fills in for David today. Heather is not a first timer to Radio 4 the Ages, as she was a co host on the show for two years in the early days. Thanks to Heather and her guests, Jeff and Patti, for providing another fine show for our listeners.
Rich London, author of A Handbook for Life, and one of the most positive and friendly guys who I’ve met recently, was my guest on this show. Rich is an individual living with Parkinson’s disease, a cancer survivor, and more importantly a successful businessman, a licensed commercial airplane pilot, and a third degree black belt.
Rich joined me in the studio for the entire show, and was joined by Heather Hammond, the Program Manager for the Parknoson Association of the Carolinas. What a treat this was to listen to Rich paint his personal picture of perseverance. As Rich tells it, “…life is a test. It’s a test of perseverance, a test of faith and a test of will. I’ve decided to pass the test.”
I know that you’ll enjoy listening to Rich London and Heather Hammond on this edition of Radio 4 the Ages- clearly one of the most enjoyable and inspirational shows that I’ve done so far!
Thanks for listening, and for being a part of my journey!

Recorded live on December 13th, David and Heather were at Atria Merrywood’s Festival of Trees. There was food, refreshments, door prizes, live music, and even a silent tree auction in which the proceeds went to Home Instead Senior Care’s Santa-to-a-Senior program which provides gifts to older adults in need in the Charlotte area. We spoke with Ty Cain (Marketing Director, Atria Merrywood) and Ann Marie Obrikat (Community Sales Director, Atria Merrywood) about the history of the Atria Merrywood community and the benefits residents can enjoy. We also interviewed Roberta Farnum of Home Instead Senior Care, Cindy Greer of Transition with Care, two lovely residents of Atria Merrywood and several more. Listen in, close your eyes, and relive the merriment of this great event!
