Parkinson's Disease and Me: Walking the Path
The author was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson's disease nine years ago at the age of 35. It was a shocking, emotional, and life-changing event. At first the author saw nothing but negatives with this diagnosis.
As she made her way through a journey with this most unwelcome intrusion into her life, she found some positives. The author also found that as disturbing and unfair as her diagnosis felt it did not make her immune to the vagaries of life.
This book was written to increase public awareness of Parkinson's disease and how the author came to realize one person can make a difference and when each person's efforts are put together with that of everyone else there is indeed strength in numbers. It is vital for everyone in our country to know there is an ethical, scientific, and moral framework in which Parkinson's disease and other devastating medical conditions can be cured. Misinformation about medical research is addressed in this book.
And finally, this book is a thank you to many people who continue to give the author their love and support through her journey with Parkinson's disease and the vagaries of life.
