I Have Parkinsons; It Doesn't Have Me" is an uplifting video that is a personal testimonial to the incredible value of brain research. It's the story of my life as family, friends, and I dealt with my Young Onset PD and the progressive disabilities that occurred for 14 years through the high tech brain surgery, DBS, that gave me back my life again! My hope is this video will inspire others with life-altering health problems to take a chance to better their conditions if the possibility exists, to take part in clinical studies thereby being proactive in helping to find a cure for what ails them. It is also my hope that it will show how vital brain research is as it's resulting in treatments, if not cures, that make a difference in our lives. May others be inspired to carry on this amazing life-altering work by funding neurological research.
