Pamela Sloate held the 2nd Annual Dystonia Bronx Zoo Walk on September 18 despite being just a few weeks out from having deep brain stimulation surgery. The event attracted
400+ supporters, representing 20 teams, to raise dystonia awareness and research funds. She will soon have a second brain surgery and then, in a third procedure, neurosurgeons will implant neurostimulators in her chest and connect them to electrodes in her brain. It may take up to a year for the benefits of deep brain stimulation therapy to be fully realized. In addition to serving on the DMRF Board of Directors, Pamela leads a dystonia support group at Mount Sinai Beth Israel and authors the blog, Chronicles Of A Dystonia Muse.
