We Are the Faces of Parkinsonís Disease
This guest post comes to us from Foundation friend, Karen Jaffe, MD. Karen is an OB/GYN in Cleveland, Ohio, and a member of MJFFís Patient Council. She and her husband, Marc, are both Team Fox members. Marc is a control participant in the Parkinsonís Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI). Karenís currently training for RAGBRAI, in which sheíll bike 471.1 miles across Iowa.
In her post, she shares photos of ďa small handful of the wonderful people I have met since being diagnosedÖ None of these men and women question their lot...but none are accepting of it either; we all do what we can...when we can. I love each and every one of these Faces of Parkinsonís. They are, in every sense, the definition of Parkinsonís 101.Ē
To hear more, and to see their photos, read her post.
