5 million people and me

I was training for the 2003 Boston Marathon when I started to favor the left side of my body. Over two years later in the fall of 2005, I was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson's Disease.

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease - a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease.
