Request a Private Conversation

I was diagnosed with Parkinson\'s Disease on August 27, 2012 but have likely had the condition since 2002, when I lost my sense of smell and saw my handwriting become small and illegible. I also developed a tremor in my right hand that then extended to my whole right arm. I'm also an advocate for the cause and am a member of the board of directors of The Parkinson Council in Philadelphia, which is the local affiliate of the National Parkinson's Foundation.
