Motivational Monday: Remember Muhammad Ali

It was with great sadness to hear that Muhammad Ali passed away on Friday June 3, 2016 at the age of 74. Muhammad Ali died from respiratory illness after a 32-year battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Muhammad was not only a legend in boxing, he was a legend in many aspects of life. Muhammad Ali is one of the greatest examples of motivation and perseverance. At Art of Care, Inc. it is always sad to hear of our patients passing, however we rejoice in the memories that are left behind. Home health care at Art of Care, Inc allows patients to live longer in the comfort of their home. Parkinson’s Disease is one the diagnosis’s we treat day to day and constantly try to bring awareness and support during the battle.

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay on Jan. 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky, to middle-class parents, Ali started boxing when he was 12, winning Golden Gloves titles before heading to the 1960 Olympics in Rome, where he won a gold medal as a light heavyweight.

He turned professional shortly afterward, supported at first by Louisville business owners who guaranteed him an unprecedented 50-50 split in earnings. His knack for talking up his own talents — often in verse — earned him the dismissive nickname “the Louisville Lip,” but he backed up his talk with action, relocating to Miami to work with top trainer Angelo Dundee and build a case for getting a shot at the heavyweight title.
