Feb. 26, 2014 was declared “Parkinson’s Day of Action” by the Parkinson’s Action Network. Because this issue is very personal to me, I felt compelled to share my story to raise awareness about this disease.
Parkinson’s disease is a chronic, progressive neurological disease. The primary symptoms are tremors and loss of movement, as well as cognitive and behavioral changes. Currently there is no cure, therapy, or drug to slow or stop the progression of Parkinson’s disease.
