Fighting Back Against Parkinson’s

People with Parkinson’s Disease have more treatment options than any other time in history.  PD is a life sentence but not a death sentence. I hope this site helps you find the resources and inspiration you need to fight back and lead a long, healthy life in spite of your PD.

Be strong and courageous.  Do not be discouraged or dismayed for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.    Joshua 1:9
