Hi Kitty
Just wanted to thank you for your informative and entertaining talk at Rotary last night. You were a wonderful speaker, talking form the heart about your experience with early onset Parkinsons. Whilst a challenging topic, you spoke with warmth, honesty, and yes humour about your tough experience. You are inspiring and I would definitely recommend you as a speaker. I am also happy to help with collecting for Parkinsons just let me know when.

Hello Kitty,

Thank you for your amazing presentation and talk about your medical condition Parkinsons. I was absolutely
amazed how positive, active, amusing and so knowledgeable you are on the subject. I have been to many
 Medical conventions, presentations and talks covering Heart, Arthritis, Asthma and skin Cancers. I trained
as a General Nurse at Hutt Hospital, Lower Hutt in the 60s and am always interested in keeping up to date,
on all subjects in the Medical field.
In saying this, not one compared to your excellent positiveness, humour and how you told it, as it is for you.
Believe me, we all enjoyed listening to you and many comments have come back to me.... mainly "wish all the
speakers we've had at Probus, were so interesting and honest."
Helene Judge Electra Business Breakfast
Hi Kitty, on behalf of Electra, thank you so much for preparing and speaking at the Breakfast on Wed. You were super funny with your raw sense of humour yet engaging and educational with the information and facts that you provided.
 I am happy to be a testimonial for your website as you are kind, smart and have an infectious humour.
John Todd, Secretary Waikanae Lions

Kitty Fitton attended our Club meeting last night and spoke to us about her early onset of Parkinson's and how she is managing living with the condition. I wanted to tell you that she is a most inspirational speaker and everyone in attendance was very impressed with her presentation and came away with a better knowledge of the condition.
I think she is an extremely valuable person for Parkinson's to have communicating information and experiences of the condition and in encouraging funding support from Charitable groups such as ours throughout the wider Wellington region.

My feedback is based on over 30 years of experience of adult education. If I were to use the 1 to 10  scale when evaluating your presentation  ( with 10 being outstanding) I would rate you as a 12. Kitty you were brilliant - you had the room in the palm of your hands (and for a room full of old farts who have heard many guest speakers  that's saying something!!!)
Your giftedness was well demonstrated, when we failed to get your power-point onto the screen.
You just carried on and worked with what you had on hand  - because you had come well prepared - and we all saw you demonstrate that you are a person who NEVER gives up especially when faced with a challenging condition like Parkinsons.
I personally believe you would make a perfect NATIONAL face to help New Zealanders get a more balanced appreciation of what Parkinsons is all about.

Dear Kitty
Congratulations on a fantastic motivational presentation at Probus this morning on living with Parkinson's disease. It was both informative and inspiring. Your positivity, determination and fantastic sense of humour shone through.

Loved your dress and shoes too, very glam, gave us an image that this disease will be managed by you, rather than the disease managing you.
