Hi I am John and thank you for visiting “Walker for Seniors”. Over the years I had the privilege of caring for an older couple who had brittle diabetes and M.S. I have also seen the challenges that both of my parents and in-laws faced as they grew older. So, writing for this site is my very heart and high honor. If you would like to drop me a note, please email me at: john@walkerforseniors.com I wish you all the best and please visit us again soon! John Ciancanelli
