Katy mayor encourages support during Tremor Awareness Month
In observance of National Essential Tremor Awareness Month, Katy Mayor Don Elder, Jr. read a proclamation at the Feb. 27 city council meeting encouraging the public to support the Katy Tremor Support Group in March and throughout the year in its efforts to raise awareness and funding for research of the disease, which affects 10 million people.
ET, which Elder says is often misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease, can significantly affect a person’s life emotionally, socially and professionally. Elder said the condition can cause a person to have trouble with everyday tasks, such as eating, writing, speaking, drinking and even getting dressed.
