Who am I

I decided to share with you my bio from

Cynthia Parrott was born in Rochester, NY and at the age of 5 she moved to Pinellas County, FL with her family where she has resided since. Cynthia graduated from Dunedin High School and attended college at Saint Petersburg College where she majored in Communications.

The mother of three daughters, one son, and two step sons; she is now raising her two year old grand daughter.

For many years, Cynthia has had an interest in environmental issues regarding toxic contaminants with a specific significance towards superfund sites and the socio-economic background of the neighborhoods where the contamination has occurred. She has photographed and documented many superfund sites and the surrounding communities.

In 2004 the author was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, in her mind this disease was merely an inconvenience and she refused to accept it as a debilitation. Although there have been long term effects with her mobility she continues to live an active life with her husband, Casey and their grandchild, Maggie. Just recently the trio traveled on a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico where they had a wonderful time.

Her first book, Ten Little Fingers was recently published by Ms. Parrott has a genetic predisposition to a familial cancer on her maternal family’s side and with her search for answers over the years regarding her family’s medical history as well as an account of her own childhood illnesses, she came up with the idea for Ten Little Fingers. It is her desire that many people will be able to utilize her book to document their child’s health records as well as their family’s history in order to assure the child, as well as future generations, access to this pertinent information.

Cynthia is currently working on her next endeavor, Come out Fighting with Your Goulashes On, a book geared towards motivating those with a serious illness or disability on the road through getting a diagnosis, above adequate treatment, and a quality of life far above expectations. Cynthia has done it and wishes to share her story of her trials and tribulations in an effort to show others they can achieve their goals too.

OKAY, now that you know about my boring existance to date, it’s your turn. I want to hear what you aspire to do? What is your dream? Come on don’t be shy.
